A Larger Home, especially a Custom Home, will usually take between 6 to 12 months. Sometimes you will run into permitting delays, you can’t get any Trades (if you live in an area with extreme growth or NO growth…!). Our house took Seven full months for the actual Build, but then you need to add another 6 weeks for the Permits to come through at the beginning.

Good cash flow is easier to achieve with a decent-sized self storage building.
