futuremrss17 :  I haven’t heard of a Morton or known of anyone who has built one, but we are hopefully going to build our own house next spring!  Sadly, I don’t have any advice for you, but wish you luck during the process!

Never heard of Morton, but we built a custom home last year.

We were involved from the very start with the floor plans and finding a lot we could build on… all the way to the finishes. It wasn’t cheap and it took about 8 months from start to finish, but I have heard of ppl that it has taken years to complete.  Make sure you are working with a builder/project manager that knows what they are doing.  Our builder kept all the trades on track and was the reason we were able to finish the build so quickly.

I can’t help you with the building loan, we didn’t get one.  There were some finishes we would have done differently.  We paid a lot for a specific hardwood and once it was in place we didnt’ love it.  We ended up selling the house a couple months after finishing, so we dont have to deal with the flooring, the new owners can change it if they dont like it.

futuremrss17 :  I know lots of people have bought pre-fab type homes or the ‘kits’ which sound similar.  I don’t know how the builder loans on them work.  My guess is you’ll probably have to check around or go with a private lender.
