I'm a cheap o and have began the task of building my own house.

I designed it. Drew it up. Starting to look like a house now.

I'm trying I'm trying.

I'm having a steel roof only structure built. Then I will in fill the walls with wood framing then a hardy board finish. In the end it will look like a ranch style home with a metal roof. Conditioned sq footage is 1,575. Under the roof will be 3,375. I was going to just build an attached carport then a large shop. But the municipality that I am in requires a two car garage. So I just built a 3 car garage. That will be almost 30'x 40'. I start framing on Saturday.

Glad you'll take free help. I was able to get all of them cut off except a gray one (blade broke), but bonus, I had some bagged concrete, so I went ahead and filled the pipe hole nice and smooth up

On a less serious note, are you going to build a safe/storm room? My brother did, he said it sure gives you a feeling of security during storms, probably never need it, but...

No safe room. Thinking about one of those little rooms from home depot in the garage though. Probably hide in there when my two daughters get a bit older.

Lumber was delivered Friday.



Started framing walls today in between my 2 daughters birthday parties. They turned 2 & 4.
