My wife and I are building in south Louisiana in a couple of years and are starting the planning already. Thanks, it is nice to know there is a place I can go for help out there.

After the shell came the hard part, which included windows, trim flooring, and fixtures, etc.

But the shell was not a HARD process, only the concrete, which should be, ha.

Lot slopes right to left and front to back
You can see the second pile behind me as shadow to the pic - these were to fill around the basement.
The front was offset (stepped) to increase the strength of the wall although we used 12" block and filled with 3000# concrete. You can see the front backfill pile in this pic.
The natural slope was hard to see with all the growth. We shopped for lots that said 'needs fill'.
