Thank you for making this website available, especially for home-building newbies. I've gone back and forth about building my own house, but with your website, I feel really empowered about building.

This is how our story begins:

We purchased a 200-year-old historic farm house property on 23 acres in 1994. We subdivided the land and sold the house and about 13 acres in 2001. We are going to build on the 10 acres that we kept. We purchased a single-wide trailer to live in while the house is being built. The septic, electric and well were installed in 2001 when we moved into the trailer. Then housing property values and building material costs went through the roof and continued to rise over the next five years. We decided to wait out the boom.

Fast-forward to 2006: the real estate market starts to settle down and lumber prices start to decline to their pre-boom levels. We developed our design using Punch! software and are now looking for an engineer and designer to offer suggestions and refine the design. I am continuing to research and develop our project plan and financial spreadsheets.
