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.

     Suppose you have set up a labor-only deal with your plumber or heating sub and need to buy parts and fixtures off a list he has supplied you and quoted at $4,500. You can go to another tradesman and say you need to get these items for under $3,000 and can you buy under his discount? You would be willing to handle the paperwork, pick up the supplies, and pay cash. Some tradesmen will help out. If not, try retired ones. You could offer them an immediate commission of $100 or $200 for the service.

     We used the piggyback technique to get an $8,000 savings on our lumber. I invited a busy custom contractor to lunch, fed him prime rib (this is a reliable contractor food) and asked if he’d mind letting us buy under his account at the local lumberyard. He set it all up for us and ran the plans through for pricing. He was a decent guy, and it didn’t hurt him to do it as it pumped up his volume and thus his customer incentives with the lumberyard.
