How it Works

Construction education is a part of onboarding new clients.

Imagine saying, "I'm sending you an email for free access to a website that focuses on construction education for homeowners like you." They'll LOVE it.
To provide this free access, you'll purchase coupon codes from Build Livable that are good for one enrollment each. We'll send you the coupons as URLs for easy sharing.
Each coupon code is $295 and includes the planning and construction navigators.
Once a client is enrolled, the resources are accessible on any device and never expire.
They learn and you get better clients. It's a win-win.

"I love the layout and design of the Planning Navigator. I'm impressed that this amount of content can feel so easy to digest and use."

About Lee and Sachi LeFever

Hi! We are the two-person team that created Build Livable.

We're homeowners who have been through three major construction projects, including a custom home that took 20 months, during the pandemic. See photos.

We're passionate about construction and believe homeowners like us deserve better resources.

We've been professional media producers since 2007. Our company, Common Craft, makes educational videos that are used in classrooms around the world.

Building experience + expertise in education = a new approach to construction education.

Build Livable is the resource we wish we had over the last decade.

We interviewed architects, builders, and homeowners to answer big questions:
  • How can homeowners ensure their project stays on budget and on schedule?
  • What do homeowners need to know about working with the construction team?
  • What are common pitfalls and mistakes homeowners should avoid?

This research, combined with a decade of experiences as homeowners, led to the creation of the Custom Home Navigator. It is by homeowners, for homeowners.
