Blu Homes enables you to design your dream home online

50 sec read

Building a new home is a nightmarish mixture of delays, unanticipated expenses, and various other headaches. This is something that Bill Haney understands quite well and wants to fix. His company, Blue Homes, does this by essentially letting you create your dream home online before you build it which takes away a significant chunk of the time and effort required to build a home traditionally. 

Bill Haney, who makes documentary films in addition to co-founding the company Blu Homes, likes to conduct a quick experiment at his movie screenings. Once the credits roll, he’ll ask the audience three questions, and ask them to raise their hands whenever the answer is yes. The questions are: If you’re building a new home, do you expect it to happen on schedule? Do you expect it to finish on a certain budget? And if those two things didn’t happen, would you tolerate this with any other piece of capital in your life? Invariably, not a lot of hands go up. Building a house is a dream that comes with a massive headache. Architects come stake out a plot, contractors come in with a staff and hit delays. Costs run wild once it’s deemed, after the fact, that different roofing is required. “If I close my eyes and think about how houses were built when I was a child and today, it’s the same,” Haney says.
