I just found this website. It looks to be exactly what I've been looking for. There are many like-minded people here who love doing things for themselves.

How time flies when you're building a house!  Things are going great.  We've been ahead of schedule,  behind schedule and not sure of our schedule.  We had problems with our lumber company not believing how fast our framers would work.  We got what we thought was a great reccomendation on a siding sub that turned out to be a really bad choice.  But, we're still moving forward and everything really is turning out great.  We're right on budget even though we've upped our finish level in almost every area.

Now, we're painting and laying tile.  Then we'll move into hanging the cabinets, let my plumber finish installing fixtures, hang interior doors and all the other fun stuff that involves "finishing" a house.  We can't wait to move in.

I can't say how happy we are that we've done this on our own.  The biggest key to making it work, though, has been my father-in-law whose been onsite almost every day to oversee everything.  It might have worked without him, but I doubt it.  There are so many errands to run, little things to get done and questions to answer that with my wife and I working fulltime, we would have struggled to make it work.

We love that  this house is ours; from design to everything being exactly the way we want.
