In March, 2008 we moved to Boone, N.C.  Boone is considered a vacation town which basically means there are a lot of Floridians and housing is insanely expensive.  A starter home will run about $200,000-$225,000 and will typically be 20-30 minutes out of town.  Anything in town will easily run $300,000-$400,000.  Since there is no way for us to afford such a home we are taking the opportunity to build our own home.  Besides, I work in the building supply industry and it only makes sense.  After all, I spend 40-50 hours a week designing homes, selling materials, and learning about the ever changing building process.  I wanted to document this process so we could look back and remember the details.  I also thought others could learn from our decisions… good or bad.
