I came across this site and The Owner-Builder Book early on. I gained a lot of valuable information from the book and this site.

We met with the first outside person *ever* on our house - it seems more 'real' now!  He was an engineer and owns Engineered Wood Components.  We showed him the plans (see below) and he is going to give us an estimate by the end of the week on providing us with 'sealed' engineering documents which we will apparently need for our permits as well as a price on the engineered floor joists and roof trusses.  He guesstimate was ~$22k for everything (sealed docs, floor joists and trusses - delivered) but we have been told that might be a little high for around here.  Any thoughts from others on that are greatly appreciated.  We will be getting other bids.

The footprint for the living space pictured below (excluding the length of the garage) is 51' across the front of the house and 36' deep.  We don't have our porch or decks pictured in the plans below (or included in the above figures.)

We are always appreciative of any input that you might have time to provide!
