Most likely we will build an ICF home, and reading Steven from Colorado Springs, CO's entries and many others who have built ICF homes has helped us to no end with our project.

Hello Betsy,

I own land in King & Queen County and will be building on it approx. three years from now. I am still in the planning stages, but I expect it to be difficult to find building materials and subs in that area (very rural).

How far from Richmond are you and how much would shipping from a Richmond-based supplier actually cost?

BILL

Hello Angela,

I tried replying to your e-mail, but the message bounced back, saying undeliverable after 6 hours.

Anywho, I'd love to hear about your friend's home and the one you're going to build. I'm still in the planning stage, but I hope to start in about a year or so.

Send me a PM anytime,

BILL

Betsy, my wife and I live in Bon Air and we are going to build in Brickshire (New Kent County), hopefully starting later this year.

We have a good friend who is in the business and who's brother is a home inspector for James City County, so we are hoping that he will give us a good list of subs.

If you PM me I can share the info I get from him. I haven't used any of these subs but at least it will be a start. Same for materials, he knows where all of the contractors go to buy and most of them know him, so maybe if you know someone who knows someone...

Shoot me a PM and we'll go from there.

Paul

We're building up in Ruckersville, VA... haven't got the financing finalized yet... but the structure is going up... and quickly too. Seems to have a life of its own.  Just an FYI we found a great source for windows in Fredricksburg: BSS  - Builders Salvage and Surplus, windows, doors, cabinets, columns, all sorts of stuff. It's definitely worth the drive.

I live in Richmond but we are doing our O-B up outside of Charlottesville. I have a guy for HVAC that I can recommend in Richmond. He replaced my system at my Brandermill house last year... would use him this time.. but we want to stay local due to gas costs.. but try Frank Lane for HVAC... 804-356-3233.

Also for windows we drove up to Fredricksburg a place called BSS -- Builders Salvage and Surplus. You have to dig around but found some great deals on windows... see Victor up there.

Website is bssdiscount.com

There are also some auctions in Suffolk and Baltimore for building materials... and also Foremost and N&W have auctions in Richmond.

I have a friend who is a plumber: Tommy Bucci 804-218-9462 but have no idea on his costs.

Good luck.

Paul,

You might want to call John Esposito at CTP Loans. They are located here in Richmond and John owner-built a house out in New Kent, it may have been in Brickshire, but I'm not sure. He was very helpful and gave me the names of some of the subs he used on his house. The phone number is 877-205-4720. I have heard nothing but good things said about CTP on this site. I just called to ask some preliminary questions and they were very helpful with me and I have yet to find a lot to build on.

Susan,

Thanks for the info on BSS. They also have a location in Warsaw where I travel for work sometimes, so I will be sure to check them out.

Many thanks for the info, I'll give him a call asap.

Does anyone have a recommendation on a good draftsman/architect/designer?
