How I saved $$$ as an Owner-Builder

When I started building my 3,000 sq ft, two storied home from a 80 year-old 1,200 sq ft as an Owner Builder, I asked all my neighbors and friends who had built their additions or extensions to their homes. All had hired General Contractors to do it for them. I was lucky enough to find a neighbor who gave me details on each and every task that were done to get his 3,800 sq ft addition done. This ebook and excel spreadsheet are meant to help others to build their additions in a similar manner. The eBook (in pdf format) provides details on tasks that were needed to build my house as an Owner Builder. The Excel Spreadsheet details the cost of each type of work performed. Costs vary widely due to many factors, however, the excel spreadsheet can provide an idea about costs as my neighbor's estimate did for me.

Any construction project is tough on the family. So, I discourage the reader to not go through with upgrading the current house and instead buy a new one. However, there may be many worthwhile reasons why one may want to do the addition. Cost usually is a primary reason. I went through the same process and when I decided to build the house, I wanted it to be as cost effective as I could make it. The pdf provides details on how I got the plans approved, diagrams showing each type of subcontractors I had to hire, AND advice based on my experience as to what to do and what not to do, and it shows pictures of work as it progressed.
