Ever since I can remember I have had this goal to build my own house. Each and every time I get started about this it ends up where the other person tells me how it aint as cheap as I think, with out me ever mentioning savings. The money aint my issue. I just have always wanted to do this. I helped build a few as a punk in my high school years and a few after I got out of the army. Plus pratically all my buddies growing up, their fathers were all trades guys. Brick layers, carpenters, electricians. Out of my buddies who still keep in touch, I am the last one to actually make the plunge.
Found my dream lot. Today we had no kids and decided to get up early and go driving. Found a 5 acre parcel in a nice small town 50 miles west from where I am at, (which is already 30 miles outside the war zone of America.) It's a done deal by the end of the week.
I figure about two years, I'll be back in my own element once again. Hope I can drum up work there. Anyway, really geeked about this..
We got 5 plans we have been debating between for a long time now. Since about 95'. The largest is 3500 SQFT.
Just curious if any of you are nuts like me??
