I may run with this format.

My wife and I are fleeing Los Angeles after decades of living here and building a house, partially of ICF construction, just outside of Port Townsend, WA, on a 1/2 acre piece of land that we bought in 2016. It has taken this long to arriving even close to a finished floor plan.

We plan on being owner-builders and could use every piece of advice and help we can find. Neither of us have construction experience, although we did become very involved in a 500 sq. ft. addition to our old home in Woodland Hills and I have a slight advantage in having an architect stepfather.

We are haggling over design plans with the architects (and have been doing so for almost six months) and will have both a site manager (a family relation who lives several miles south) and a consultant friend who has done contracting work in the Puget Sound area. 

Currently waiting on the Septic Permit, I've got several septic installers to choose from but am reluctant to get bids until the design passes. Once that happens and we finalize the design plans, I think the train will be inching out of the station and I'll start getting bids from all the subs.

But it will be a winter build - not part of the original plan at all.

Much to write about and no time, but I will add to this, maybe photos and documents and offer questions on issues as they come up.

Until later.
