You will be shocked how much you learn on this forum and reading in a very short space of time. I've gone from a doubtful O-B to a chomping at the bit to break ground O-B in just a few short months.

I am building a house in Antelope Valley outside of Reno, Nevada. Are there any other O-Bs out there who would like to exchange any info?

We also live in Nevada also but are just in the planning stages. We would like to talk with you. We would like to build with ICF and are trying to find an designer or architect.

I don't know if you need any tile but we got tiles that retail for $3 and up and vary in sizes for $.80 each. I don't know what they have left but they said that they thought that they may do this every year and maybe twice a year? Let me know if your interested.

La Honda, CA. We bought a fixer a few years back and have been redoing it as time permits. As a matter of fact I am done today! The house is already on the market with one buyer getting cold feet in escrow. Oh well. They can only buy it one at a time). I am subbing out the well, building pad, and the insulation (wet blown cell.) on the Reno house. I will be doing the rest of the work myself. I do remodeling and new construction for a living so the learning curve is a bit easier for me. But every new job has its problems (or as my wife likes to say "opportunities"), that is half the fun of it. Kinda like a very long Logic Puzzle. Of course it is more fun after it is over then in the midst of it. As far as my budget, I am building a horse property for resale in two years (for tax reasons).

So my budget is based on the projected market. I used resale stats of the area centering on some target properties that were on the market . What they sold for. How long on market etc. etc. Then I picked a house I would enjoy building and my wife would like to live in for two years(it was easier than it sounds). Now I am filling in the blanks so to speak with the model numbers, brands, and what not. That is what is on the to do list while I am doing the foundation and framing. I have most of the items picked out. I am using QuickBooks to run my budget. My wife, the executive branch so to speak, assumes veto power at any time so a tight budget makes a happy marriage.

I'm looking for anyone that has O-B in Washoe County and has experience with the WC Building Dept. What hoops you had to go through to get permits, insurance requirements, and licensing if at all required. Please PM me. Thanks a lot in advance.

Greetings -

I'm a few years behind the previous posters here, but we are starting a project in Silver Springs.  It isn't technically Reno, but then it isn't Elko or Las Vegas, either.  Be interested in communicating with any O-Bs in the Reno or Lyon County area.

Hi Calvin,  this is your neighbor Chris.  How are you?  I just found this site today and signed up.  We were just out to our property last weekend getting dirt work bids.  $$$ ouch!.  My plan is to start building in March/April and we will do almost all the work ourselves (plan is to sub out foundation, electrical, HVAC and drywall).  I would appreciate any tips you have such as the cheaper septic system you mentioned.  The house next to us did sell, as I noticed. Shannon and family had packed up and moved. Thank-you

Hi Mike,

We are on the verge of closing a land purchase in South Reno. We are planning to build. Could you tell us how do we get started?  Did you do your own plans? Any additional insights are appreciated.

Thanks
Srini

Hi Srini,


Sorry for the late response.  Have not checked back since I bought the book.  We started looking at online plans.  NV requires plans stamped by NV designer.  We have found a designer that will work plans for $3 sq ft.  Checking references and moving forward.  Concerned about building costs.  Estimating software shows $125 sq ft, Architects say $3.00 -3.50 sq ft!
