If you've read The Owner-Builder Book you've already started. I've found it to be one of the best confidence builders yet. It gave me exactly what I needed to get started. For real. What I mean by that is, starting is not clearing land or putting a hole in the ground. It's planning and understanding what you are up against. This book covers it very well.
