Letter To The Reader

I had no idea I could build a house.

I didn't know the first thing about carpentry, or cement work, or any of the trades; I had no tools; and I certainly didn't have enough money to build the kind of place I knew I wanted.

Yet here I sit in the nicest office I've ever had in the nicest home we've ever owned enjoying every comfort and a breathtaking view of the mighty Wasatch mountains.

Elaine and I built this place. We truly love it. Its a gorgeous house that has everything we want in it and works very well. It's a great comfort because we can manage the mortgage payment and because we go to sleep knowing that we have more equity in it than we owe.

I never thought we could do this because people assume you can't. And the thought that you could do it far less expensively than a general contractor really causes resistance. People told us "no" all the time.

We decided to write a book that would tell you "yes".

Enjoy this book. It's loaded with every tool, technique, and tip that we used, most of which we couldn't find in any other book.

One more thing. We sometimes felt very alone building our house. Because we don't want that to happen to you, we have provided a web site where you can interact with other owner-builders. Elaine and I are accessible via toll-free number and fax as well.

Don't let anybody tell you you can't do this.
