We are owner-building because it's a challenge and the potential payoff/self-satisfaction are immense.

Here's our current plans. The first-floor joists aren't correct on this print. We have one option of a single beam down the middle and are exploring an option of using a load-bearing wall instead of the beam.

We have our septic/well permit. Ohio passed new codes for this year, which makes things a little more difficult, but the woman in charge of the county office was great. She even re-drew my profile plan for me when my attempt didn't have all the required elevations.

We're working to get bids for all the main trades so that we're ready to go when the permit and construction loan are done. Let's hear it for the spreadsheets and tools posted on this site!! 

My fears from last time about our appraisal were unfounded. Our appraisal came in at $375K so we're fine.

So far, everyone we've dealt with has been great. None of the lumberyards, government offices or subs have given us a hard time because we're owner-building. In fact, most have been very helpful.
