Using my experience as a builder to inspect your home.
John C Hansen, LEED AP
I have been involved in home building most of my career. In total, I have managed some or all of the construction phases and details of nearly 1,000 homes. I have at various times worked for the largest home builder in the United States and later I worked with the oldest home builder in Illinois. I started out as an Assistant Superintendent on a community of 60 homes in Streamwood, Illinois. In addition to that community, I was the construction superintendent for four off-site homes built in Fox Lake, Ingleside, Inverness, and Arlington Heights, Illinois.
Through the course of my career I served as Superintendent, Project Manager, Contracts Manager, Director of Construction, and Director of Contracts and Purchasing.
The many types of homes that I have worked on included single family, duplexes, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 unit multi-family condominiums.
My longest time with one builder was almost 10 years building in the Fox Valley from Aurora to Batavia. I have also built homes in St Charles, Woodstock, Fox Lake, Waukegan, Olympia Fields, Buffalo Grove, Lake Zurich, Lake Forest, Glenview, Hanover Park, Lake In The Hills and many other scatter site locations in Kane, McHenry, Lake, and Cook Counties.
The smallest home that I built in Aurora was less than 1000 square feet with a one car attached garage. The largest home was in Lake Forest that was over 3500 square feet with a three car attached garage.
