I have been diligently reading The O-B Book. I'm about halfway through, and it helps me gain the confidence to become an owner-builder.

February 2008

Wow…what a month.  During this time, we were working on changing our plans from 6x6 construction to ICF.  We had to go back and forth with the city, structural engineer, manufacturer, architect, drafter, etc.  Surprisingly, when we had all our ducks in a row, the result was a very quick review & passage (less than 2 weeks).  A lot of this month was spent on the phone, lining up bids etc.  We wanted a minimum of 3 bids per trade, our folder from our consultant had 1-3 per trade & ballpark estimates on the other items.  Some of the companies were too busy, out of business, etc by the time we were building & all needed/wanted to revise their bids (usually upwards).

We also bought some accessories for our tractor, because everyone knows ones needs an extra bucket J. 

Our pad was also finished and our consultant informed us that it was great!  Little did we know that it was great…but that the height was a little low & would cause us problems down the road.  At this time, we were quite happy.

Working on the pad, keeping the dust down!
Still lumpy, but getting there
Kim putting the sides on our dump trailer...Instead of having a waste pick-up, we drove to the dump when needed. And I learned to Weld!!!
The pad is getting there & the view is great!
Had to have the house points re-surveyed. The pad doesn't look too big here :), but the footprint of the house is slightly more than 8000sf.
