I devoured your book, and hit every spot on your website. We're in Brevard County, FL and we got it kicked out of us by the hurricanes here. I'm amazed at the amount of information on your website. There is so much motivation for owner-builders there.

I am in the very beginning stages of my project, so I don't know how helpful I will be. I can tell you that at Direct Buy they use Jeld-Wen windows.  I am a member, and would be willing to call their rep to see if I could get a better price.
