Unfortunately I did not find your book in time for this house but we have it for the next one. It is a great book, full of useful information. Lots of it seems like common sense after you read it but I did not have the common sense to think of it before I read it.

I would like to meet and talk with other Owner-Builders in Houston who would like to do the same, especially those remodeling.  I just closed on a high-end home on the cusp of River Oaks (W Alabama and Buffalo Speedway) and am doing a $200K remodel (built in 1984).

This is my first remodel, but I have supervised the $700K renovation of an apartment complex I am a partner in.  I am almost through reading The Owner-Builder Book and ordered the "Whole Enchilada" off of this site so I have a lot more homework to do, but would like to meet with people who have actually done it.

PM me or post here, and I will coordinate a meeting if there are several of us.

Thanks,

Shawn

Hello Shawn,

I am planning an O-B build in Galveston.  I own a lot near Moody Gardens and have planned to build there for some time now.  The area seems prime now.  I am in the early stages of creating my detailed budget, working with a lender and the city building department for permits and getting to know the building codes/inspections process.  But I would like to start establishing a network to share subs, ideas, etc.  Unfortunately, I am in MD and plan to relocate back to Houston within the next year so I will not be able to meet personally.

Thanks,

Robert

Shawn,

I am in Houston area also.  If you do get a meeting together of O-Bs please let me know.  I would love to attend.  We are just in the planning stages but I would love to learn anything and everything I could from those who have already done the process.

Hello Jenee,

We are also in Katy as of now. We are purchasing land in the Bellville/Brenham area. Would be interested in your lessons learned thus far with your building project.

Thanks,

Michael & Sheila

Michael,

Glad to see someone else thinking of taking on the ownerbuilder route in our area.  We are still looking for land.  One of our issues is that land closer to the city (even north of town) is really too expensive at least for what we want to pay... but in our case since we currently both are working full time we can't just yet look further out like at Canyon Lake and such because we would have to relocate. We have just been putting ideas on paper right now.  Also casually talking to subs and getting some business cards.  It is amazing how many numbers you can get by just going to a nice new development and stopping the car and asking for info on what the contractors do.  I will keep in touch and I am always on the forum keeping notes.  I ordered the Owner-Builder Workshop to watch as well.
