4 Great Video Channels for Home Builders

  1. Ask The BuilderYou don’t always have time to sit down and watch a video that focuses on every little detail, and Tim Carter (or “The Builder”) knows that. Tim has spent more than a decade on YouTube posting well-paced, informative videos about all aspects of the building process. From the basics for new builders to the nitty gritty inner workings of building projects to help guide experienced builders. While a lot of the content is focused specifically on the building process and less on design trends, Tim provides something for everyone. Ask The Builder also has a blog and social media outlets, allowing you to explore Tim’s written insights as well.
  2. America’s Home PlaceWhile America’s Home Place features a lot of branded content, the insight which AHP provides to the homebuilding world is incredible.

The YouTube page is updated at least three times per week, providing a steady stream of new information and inspiration for your current project and those ahead of you.
  3. Architectural DigestShowing off the ultimate inspiration behind new builds and updates to homes alike, Architectural Digest makes the fantastic accessible. With many of the AD videos featuring celebrity homes, there is a lot of inspiration to be had in the luxury and modernism shared by the AD crew. Beyond serving as style inspiration, Architectural Digest also provides an “On The Market” series which provides both style ideas and what your potential list price could be should you build something similar.
