Kit Homes US Reviews are provider website reviews directed at the owner builder trying to wade through the hype, adverts and gloss of kit home provider/supplier websites in the US.
Many sites state they offer 'build it yourself' home building kits, but when you check the details you find only a builder is capable of erecting them, they only supply 'to lockup' or they have no support or manuals. Some sites are difficult to surf, have no substance, prices or relevant information. Others are just fronts for home sale sites.
Note: The US has an enormous supply of sites claiming to supply kits but most fall well short of being useful for the amateur DIY owner builder-and thats what KHB is all about. This page is designed to be a hub to specific review pages of provider/supplier websites that have actual owner builder kits advertised for sale. It also lists the website address and location of the business if you wish to investigate more.

1. Website information access: navigation, speed, copy, contact
