HBA of FM: 3 Ways To A Solid Framework For Your Project

By Darrick Guthmiller, Home Builders Association of F-M President
Darrick Guthmiller is a partner in Kochmann Brothers Homes, Inc., specializing in new custom homes, remodeling and lake homes.

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 guidance. 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 is important to know licensing requirements, state warranty information, ways to evaluate a contractor and more. We offer these tools at’s Build/ Remodel section. The website also showcases a categorized online directory with all our local member companies.
  2. Engage

    The Red River Valley Home & Garden Show Feb. 26-28, 2021, is a one-stop-shop to meet contractors and related industry businesses in the region. You will be able to see product samples and get a feel for their services and style.
  3. Experience

    The Parade of Homes is the perfect way to be inspired by our members’ homes and skills first-hand. We just wrapped up the Fall Parade of Homes and will have our 61st annual Spring Parade of Homes the first three weekends in May 2021. Use these designated weekends to meet your future forever home and its builder or make plans for your next project.

The HBA of F-M has been serving home builders, buyers and owners for over 60 years. It is our vision to nurture a thriving, innovative and diverse housing industry in our community. 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 a solid framework for the rest of your life!
