Just making plans

Hi Dan, I have to say that I am so glad that I found your site. I am very interested in building my own house but what holds me up is a lack of experience.

I am a cabinet maker by trade and I have been certified as a journeyman since 1989 , so in regards to building a house I know that the finishing would be a breeze.

I grew up on a farm and one of my earliest construction memories is that of helping to shingle our house. I have also sided and done the soffits and facia on houses. I have done many different things that would carry over into the building of a house,drywall,painting,tile work, flooring..You get the picture.

There are questions that I hope you might be able to shed light on. Questions such as time that should be expected to do certain tasks and the specifics of other things....well Dan....lots of questions.

I cannot seem to find any sites that have what I am looking for. Your site is far and away the best I have encountered and to be able to draw on your personally experiences is fantastic.

I guess that's all for now,hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Daniel.

Taking on the challenge of build your own home is exciting. Sound like you are doing the necessary research. With your skills you should have no problem.

If there is some parts of the construction you feel you are not comfortable with you can always higher subs.

Good luck and let us know how things go.
