On the advice of a friend whose husband is a contractor, I began to look into owner-building. I found this website and downloaded the book yesterday. I'm halfway through it and this whole thing is enthralling... but I've figured out that I need to slow down and do this right.

Has anyone started or completed an OB home in the San Antonio Hill Country in the past 12 months that would be interested in referring their sub-contractors and suppliers (Pros and Cons)

James,

I would be glad to provide you with my list of subs and suppliers.  I have just finished collecting my bids.  However, I received the list from a friend of mine that just finished owner building last November.  Every one has been pretty easy to work with so far and my friend was very satisfied with the quality of work.  If you want to send me a PM I can provide you with more info.

Regards,

Chris Weber

I live in Dallas, but am looking to start building first of next year, on my lot in  Hays County, outside Dripping Springs.

I'm looking for names and recommendations for subcontractors who might work in the area.  At this stage, my top priorities are designer, framing contractor, foundation, and water well and septic.  But pretty soon I'll be looking for most of the others, including plumbing, electric, hvac, roofing, insulation, stone mason, drywall, painter, finish carpenter, cabinetmaker, flooring, countertop, ceramic tile, etc. etc.

I've just begun to accumulate a few names, but really, almost any info could be very helpful at this stage, even if it's just a name somebody's given you.  Naturally as I develop a list of subcontractor prospects and their contact info, I'll be happy to share that back with anyone who's interested.

Feel free to PM me.

Thanks very much,

Michael Penn Smith

(Currently Dallas, Texas)

Thanks,

Chris,

I am planning on OBing on my lot in Summerglen (north San Antonio).  I am just starting to collect bids and would love a list of your contacts.  We are building a walkout basement style house on a sloped lot and so need to have a pretty big retaining wall.  I want to make sure we get good foundation and framing subs to do this right.  I pretty much need contacts in every area though, from excavation to finish work.  Thank you!
