I presented the free Owner-Builder Book to my local library last week. They were delighted to receive the book. The librarian flipped through the contents and some of the sections of the book, and noted that this would be a great addition to the library collection, and would likely be used frequently. She added that she and her husband had built their own house twice - actually doing much of the work themselves.

Looking at all the tables in the step up strategy spreadsheets I am confused about a few things.

 1. How is the number figured in the column titled (PROJECTED MONTHLY PAYMENT)

2.  And the column (ACTUAL MONTHLY PAYMENT)

Any help would be appreciated

Tom

Tom:

    In the download gallery the template is called Step-up Strategies 2006.xls and the cells you are referencing have formulas in them that explain the calculations. The "projected monthly payment" is 1% of the builder's estimate to build your project minus any equity you have. The "actual monthly payment" for an owner-builder is figured as 1% of the owner-built cost of the project. The owner-built cost is conservatively figured at 20% less than builder cost. In my case, owner-built cost was about 45% less than builder cost. In our owner-builder survey, the owner-built cost of respondents is about 65% of "builder cost".
