Hi all, I am trying to do my pre-building planning. I am VERY new to this and NO clue about anything and any help would be welcome. I am looking for guidance on things that go into building a home.

I am working on the plans for a 3,563 sq ft home in mid-Georgia and I would like to know some of the things I should have in my project, e.g. what are the different subs I'll need, what are the different things that go into the building process other than the obvious: brick, wood, roof, windows, doors, and flooring. 

I know I am asking basic questions here, but I am trying to avoid overlooking something because if mistakes can be made, then I can do it (smile).

Again, I look for any direction you can provide.

Thanks, now let me sit back and await your reply.

P.S. I just ordered The Owner-Builder Book.

Trevor, most of those questions will be answered in the book, I'd suggest asking again, when you have more specific questions, although you can find lots of useful information here in the forums and I'm not trying to discourage you from posting questions, it is just tough to answer something as generic as

"What are the different things that goes into the building process other than the obvious brick, wood, roof, windows, doors, flooring. "

Some answers to your question are permits, excavation, foundation, rough plumbing, financing and many other things go into a house besides brick, wood, roof, windows, doors, and flooring.

Enjoy the book, it helped us a lot, especially when it comes to planning and understanding all the things to consider.

Bret

My wife and I are still in the planning stage, but the book has been helpful and so have some of the downloads in the download gallery: ownerbuilderbook.com/gallery. There is a lot to think about and I'm hoping my wife and I cover all the bases too.
