your design, your kit


Sometimes you know exactly what you want to build, but you have better things to do than figure out all of the materials you need, go back and forth to the big box store, and scour the internet for an arsenal of how-to sites to figure out each and every detail.  Maybe you have hobbies other than learning how to measure, calculate, and cut a strong "bird's mouth".  (Trust us - it's not worth googling.  There are much more important things to look up on the internet.)

We frequently have wonderful people contacting us saying, "I has a specific design I want to build, but I don't want to spend $1,000 on tools I'll never use again, or spend weeks figuring out every detail."  We hear you.  And all along we've been secretly shipping custom kits to many of these folks.  Now it's time to let the secret out. 

Here's how it works:  You tell us exactly what you want, and we'll make a kit for you.  It's that simple.  Like all Homebuilt kits, each part will be robotically cut to exactly the size and shape needed, and each will include the necessary plumbing, electrical, nail, and screw pilot holes.  All parts will be custom numbered to your kit, and the numbers will be referenced in the personalized, custom instruction manual included as well.

So, grab your cordless drill, a buddy, and a pitcher of lemonade.  Next weekend you'll be enjoying your backyard studio, and you'll have left the "bird's mouth" to the robin singing your praise.

Please note:  Because foundations and decks are best designed and built to fit your building site, they are not included in Homebuilt kits.  However, we would be more than happy to help you pick the best options for each of these, based on your needs and site.
