The book and this site have been very valuable tools for me throughout the whole process. I knew nothing of owner-building a home prior to this and had not even planned on doing it until I was forced to with the loss of my other house, so I had to learn everything and learn it quick. The book and this site helped me thru it all. You really can't do enough planning. 1,000 hours is not enough.

Time just keeps going by so fast!! Moving was quite the effort. I planned to organize everything as we brought it in the new house, but we were running out of time, so everything got thrown in. We are slowly getting unpacked, but a few things are holding us up. One, we have been working on getting shelves/rods in the closets. Second, we are still fighting with home depot on getting our kitchen complete (with decent quality). Once that is done, then we can get all the kitchen boxes unpacked. Back to moving, moving and cleaning the rental took so much time. Between that and stress 3 of us ended up with Strep. So I had strep in the end of April and end of May....uggghhhh. Currently, we are battling the last bit with the rental, getting our full security deposit back. They only gave us 2/3 and then I spent the last week providing backup and getting upset, but it sounds like we should be getting it all back. Well, I thought we were going to issue a temp certificate of occupancy in the end of May, but we had to have our original inspector come back to check a few things. We needed a few more smoke detectors in the house, it took us weeks to find a wireless interconnecting smoke detector that would work with ours. Well, we wrapped up all of our items, and the inspector came back out. He told us we were good to go! But that only lasted for 24 hours and then we got a phone call from the inspector saying we needed a final elevation survey because we had a flood plain use permit we had to finalize. We got the survey on Monday, and now just waiting to hear back from the county. We still have lots of stuff to do just to finish the actual houseā€¦ finalize siding, finish caulking the outside, paint the garage door, paint all interior doors, buy/paint/install baseboards, finish closets, cabinets or shelving in pantry and laundry room. After all of that, then we can get started on the landscaping.
