< > If you are on TWITTER, you'll love this new Twitter Auto Follow Back program - it's FREE, but I got a one time only payment of $5, and that automatically Follows Back for me - is fantastic!

Pictures of the last house I built :)

This is a great way to quickly see the stages involved in Building Your Own House. The Written Timelines are all above the pictures of each Stage, and you can click on each box to see whatever Building Stage you are particularly interested in ... I love all the pictures, but I really love the pictures at the Drywall and Insulation Stage -- I thought that was so cool the way the Peak in the Great Room came together! We came in $40,000. under budget on this house, which was fantastic. I can't urge you enough to be extra nice when you are looking for your best deals, and go directly to the source when you are buying big ticket items, like windows & doors, lumber, cement...really, tell them you are the Builder, and try to get the Builders' Pricing.
