I wish I knew this site (along with The O-B Book that I just ordered) existed when I did my O-B project in 2000. The information provided has been great!

Thanks for the reply Rolanda.  We are at the bank level right now and have been approved for the construction loan.  We are building in MoneyHill and hopefully we can apply for our permit in the next month or two.  I was in the brick selling business here on the NorthShore in mid nineties, and I know things have changed since then, but I dealt with alot of contractors who basically never paid their bills for material and when they did it was +90 days.  I decided back then I'd never hire a builder to build my house or as I would call it, "pencil pusher."  Good to here there are others in the area that are owner building.  Stay in touch so we can help with subs or any problems that may arise.

We are lot 91 in the subdivision. Our friends bought lot 65, they are really nice. We are still early on in the process. My husband has almost finished the house plans. We hope to start as soon as possible, but I am not sure when we’ll have everything ready to start construction. How was dealing with the architectural committee in the subdivision?

I have not submitted the plans yet to them but I spoke to a family
on Tartan Trace(where there are 5 new houses going up) and she said
they were no problem. She siad it seemed to be a bit of a formality
and not very complicated. I think they just want to make sure you
are not building a "barn" or a "spaceship" type home. I think as long as you are within the square footage requirements.

Just wanted to check in here. We are doing an extensive remodel of a double shotgun in the French Quarter. Thinking about doing it as owner-builder. Would love to trade info on architects, subs, etc.

Ben,

How is your project going?  I'm new to the site so I doubt I can help you much, but I'm very interested in historic restorations such as your French Quarter home.

I do have a buddy who's an architect with a firm in New Orleans, but I'm pretty sure he deals with mosty commercial there.  I'm sure you're way past that point by now anyway.

Scott
