In addition to The Owner-Builder Book, I've read Better Houses, Better Living and am in the process of reading Make Your House Do the Housework and have watched several of the DVDs that I've ordered from this site, all of which have been jam-packed with excellent information that I cannot imagine building a house without.

     Reader Candy M. of Washington, DC is one of several who have contacted us about the unexpected expense of buying plans on the Internet: “I spent $700 on plans that I bought off the Internet. Now I find out that they have to be signed and sealed by someone in my area, an architect, I think. Where do I start?”

     Naturally, the architect must be paid for his involvement. And the plans have to be customized usually for local conditions, as designer Don Borne of Bend, Oregon explains: “I have been designing homes for many years. People have always brought me plans for years that don’t comply with local codes. The techniques, materials, and labor are different. Some places you have seismic risks, some places wind, some places snow load. You differ by ten miles and you change your snow load up here.”
