I've just read The Owner-Builder Book for the second time. My wife got it from the library two weeks ago. And then got a copy from Books-A-Million for an early Christmas present. She knows how I am about needing to know.

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'.
