Are You Ready For That Home Building Experience?

The rewarding experience of home building has hit me three times.

My last home I built was to be my last, but guess what.. I still have that bug.(My wife walks around with a can of bug spray...not really.)

Seriously building your own home can be a very enjoyable and not to mention profitable experience, if you are equipped with the proper information and tools.

On this site, I will share with you the information and knowledge I have gained during my building experiences. What worked for me and what did not.

In one short year by selling my home and building a new one,I doubled the equity I had in my home .

When you look at it that way...that is not a bad return on your investment in one year.

At first you may think..."I couldn't do that"...but when you break it down into each step it's quite simple.Think of it as a puzzle,one piece at a time,and as you finish one step it all comes together piece by piece.

Don't get me wrong,building a home is a big undertaking but with the proper research and is doable.

Before starting my project, I would get a pencil and paper and jot down each step, from the bottom to the top.

During this process if something was not quite clear to me I would research that area.

Armed with all the information and the tools I am ready to build my dream home...And so I did... and so can you.

The key to making your dream home come together smoothly with out the headaches is to plan...plan...plan each step carefully,and when you have a full understanding of each step then you are ready to build.

I hope will help you in your home building decisions.
