Your website is wonderful! I am so happy I ran across it. Building your home without using a general contractor who knows so much about the business can be intimidating to someone who has never done it. Seeing others out there who are doing it and commenting on the process is very encouraging.

If you tour tract homes you can spot some interesting builder economies that may work for you. We’ve seen items like:

• A normal flat door, with added raised moldings on it that make it fancy, and have a solid core door for very cheap.
• Fake wainscotings where they do a little different paint or paper under a molding at waist height to make a “poor man’s wainscoting.”
• Fluted moldings downstairs, standard upstairs
• Fully-cased windows in public areas, sheetrock cased in bedrooms.
• Wooden window blinds in public areas, vinyl elsewhere.
• Tile in master bath, vinyl floor covering in kids baths.

The Complete Guide to Contracting Your Home talks about two by six-inch framing on lower floors and
two by four-inch framing on upper floor, with corresponding reduction in upper floor insulation.
