Mark, thank you for writing such a great book. I have bought many books to help me through my building process, but yours is the one I go back to the most. I'm on my second home now. It is so much easier the second time around. The first house was such a huge success. It cost us about $100/ft to build with top of the line details, and including a swimming pool (but not including land), and we sold it less than two years later for about $235/ft. We made several hundred thousand dollars profit on that one house! I think it's safe to say owner-building has changed my life. Thanks!

I feel like we have to write something down or nothing will be accomplished.  Still slow going but we have crossed off a few more items on the list. 

AND there was another auction today!  I only stopped by to look... Tons of things I wanted, just sticking to the budget (I didn't even register for a number... I'm telling ya, that a hard thing for me!).  I had to be at work at noon so I left a list with my brother with items and bid limits.  Sinks and faucets all went for more than I wanted. My brother picked up 750 sq ft of 3/4 inch prefinished cherry flooring at $2.25 a sq ft.  He has several rental properties and just closed on a new one that he's fixing up... it will have great looking floors!  One missed item was a pallet of car siding... I need this for the main house for the underside of all the covered decks.  They had 5,040 LF... about 420 sq ft in cedar. Selling it all as on lot so that knocked several of the bidders out right away.  It went for $1.70 a sq ft... just under $800 by the time you add in the auction up charge.  A GREAT Deal considering it runs 60 cents a linear foot from the millwork and lumber companies.  Hopefully they will have it again.  Still waiting to see about some tile, it's nothing I can't live without.

This week Mike got the sound system installed and the ladder to the loft.  He also cut all the quarter round but the baby had issues with the nail gun so he couldn't get it nailed in.  The missing doors and cabinets finally came in so we'll get them in next week.  Well, that’s the plan anyway.
