3 Ways To A Solid Framework For Your Project

By Dustin Murray, Dustin Murray Construction, HBA of F-M Presiden

I like to picture the Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead as a home.

Think of the organization as the foundation and trusses forming the framework.

Think of our members’ many services as the home’s amenities and features.

Finally, picture the HBA as a trusted place to come back to whenever you need help or advice. We are your go-to resource when planning to buy, build or remodel a home.

HBA of F-M members offer many unique services. We have our top three tips for you to connect, and start building a solid framework for your project.

1. Educate – It’s important to learn about licensing requirements, state warranty information, ways to evaluate a contractor and more. We offer these tools at’s Build/Remodel section.

2. Experience – The Parade of Homes, is the perfect way to be inspired by our members’ homes and skills first-hand. We showcase homes during both a Spring Parade and Fall Parade featuring newly built homes. Plus, we host a Remodeled Home Tour showcasing renovated homes. Use these designated weekends to meet your future forever home and its builder, or make plans for that next project.

3. Engage – The Red River Valley Home & Garden Show held each February is a one-stop shop to meet contractors and related industry businesses in the area. You will be able to see a sampling of their products and get a feel for their services and style.

The HBA of F-M has been around for over 60 years. It is our mission to promote an environment where our members can prosper, and a main component is keeping housing affordable for you. Homeownership creates communities, and improving existing homes means our neighborhoods also excel. There is no better investment than buying a home. It can create the solid framework for the rest of your life!
