Be sure to make use of O-B Connections
at our site. By checking registered users near you, you may find someone who is building at the same time you are, and they may lead you to others who are building in your area. As I have interviewed O-B's, I've found that they all had two or three unique moneysaving ideas that they implemented when they built. Very often these ideas will work for a fellow O-B in the same locale at around the same time. Take advantage of the rich resource.
