I used The O-B Book as my guide every step of the way - and it convinced me that I could easily project manage (general contract) the building, but that we did not have the time and energy to really do almost any of the actual work.

We are finally really underway.  Our plans breezed through the county building office.  I was surprised, but the clerk said that we had a very complete package and could, obviously, follow directions.  Since the permit came faster than expected, we had to wait a week or so to get our excavator out to the lot.  That's not bad, but it was excruciating. 

Now, we're on a good track.  The excavator started yesterday with the driveway.  He dug most of the basement today and will finish it and the trenches for garage/porch footers tomorrow.  Our concrete guy will have his footer crew in Fri to set/pour footers.  If the weather holds (Ohio in springtime so who knows) we'll have the wall crew in Tue to start setting forms and pouring walls.  The following week would be plumber roughing in my basement plumbing and my flatwork guys pouring my slabs for basement and garage.  The framers are ready for the next week.  It's a great plan.  We'll see if it holds.

At least we're now the proud owners of a gravel driveway and big hole.
