Sorry I couldn’t resist, I love getting this kind of email!

From: Dale

Hey George your website is awesome! I love research too and love it when a plan comes together. My husband says I am not right! While I love research and learning about everything it makes him crazy! But building yourself is much more rewarding. When I think I know all there is I dig even more and put the brain in overdrive. Thanks for all the good advice. Just wanted to say thanks

Response

Hello Dale,

Thanks for the encouraging words! I am glad you love to research it will save you time and money in the end. My wife and I both love to dig in and find the facts. Sometimes it does get a little crazy but who cares!

Happy home building,

George

From: Brett

George, Thank you for the newsletter. I am writing from Chicagoland and planning to build my next home. I am currently planning an addition to my home and have found your website to be very enlightening. There is nothing else like it out there. As a professional carpenter I find it hard to see the other aspects of bringing an entire home together from empty lot to closing. Until next month, later ;)

Response:

Hello Brett,

I appreciate the compliment and hope your building project goes well.

All the best,

Response:

Hello Terry,

It warms my heart to know you are going to build your dream! The house you are going to build is AWESOME.

From Tara:

First, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WEBSITE. Your right, I was searching and everyone wanted to sell me something when all I wanted was information. Second, have you heard of home kits--build yourself kits where the wood and windows, siding and shingles come in a package? What is your opinion on this?

Response:

Hello Tara,

Thanks for your comments. I am glad you are finding Build Your Own Home useful. :)

I really have no experience with kit homes. Sorry.

If I were considering purchasing one I would take some time and investigate the source. Maybe go to the factory and look them over and research for any complaints. Sometimes a simple Google search on the internet can reveal a lot about a company.

Proceed with caution do your research. This is true with any big purchase.

All the best,

George

Keep up the great work and i hope to read though all of your pages

Response:

Hello Naela,

Thanks for the compliment! Keep dreaming and set goals they will come true.

From Mark:

George,

What a great web site!!! You should really consider puting this into book form. They way you put things is great. They sound like they are comming from a "normal guy" that has done this before not some stuff author that is reciting facts. Let me know if you created a printer friendly version of the whole site or publish a book. I am a prospective self built home builder and the knowledge you convey is perfectly suited to someone in my shoes. Thank you for building this site!!!!!!!!!!!

Response:

Hello Mark,

Thanks for the great compliment! I have been considering writing a book for some time, but as I am sure you know it is a big job. In a sense I have already written the book one web page at a time, so all I have to do is edit the whole thing and then distribute it.

When I do publish, it will be in a an EBook in PDF format and I will offer it on the site. I have been asked by several readers to offer a book form and I know it would help in the building process.

Thanks for giving me a good nudge in the right direction.:)

Have a Merry Christmas,

George

PS. When I do write the book I will notify all the readers through the newsletter and this contact list.

Thank you for your website. I have been looking all over for a site like this and can't believe it took me as long as it did. I did not find it until I used Google's Blog Search.

First let me apologize for the late response. Living near the Gulf coast during hurricane season can be a challenge.

Thanks so much for your kind comments. Happy home building.

From Edward:

Great site! I am considering building, and the information you have here is very helpful. There is one thing that you might want to consider editing, and that is in the termite section. The word species always ends with the letter "s" even if only one bug is being discused. You have a great site, and using species instead of specie would make it even better.

Thank you for all of the information you have made available.

By the way, your house is awesome!

Response:

Hello Edward,

First let me apologize for the late response. Living near the Gulf coast during hurricane season can be fun!

Thanks for your comments and your compliments about my site. Also I am going to add the "s" on species today. Good find! You get a little myopic looking at your own work sometimes.

All the best,

From Charlie:

I just wanted to say thanks for a very helpful and encourging site. I have built houses in the past and still found your site extremly helpfull. Do you do this for fun our is there a product you sell? How do you make this site profitable or is it just a hobby?

Response:

Hello Charlie,

Thank you for your kind words. The site started out as a hobby and has turned into more than a hobby. I utilize a web service that helped me get my start called SBI!. I did not know anything about the web until I started Build Your Own Home with SBI!.

I have included a link to them if you are curious or would like to build a website. This is a link to the page that will help http://buildit.sitesell.com/Jann.html.

I found your website and think that it is great. My father builds houses part time and I have done one house myself and now live in Oakland County and am planning on doing another house. I noticed that you had a few things in the Web site for Oakland County. Did you build the house in Oakland County, MI. Just curious what city or township?

Response:

Hello Tim,

Thanks for the kind remarks. We built in Texas.

From Drew:

Hi, I'm looking for acreage now in middle Tennessee to relocate to and build our "dream home". Your web site is really informative - good stuff from a guy who's done this himself already. I am a school teacher and a tradesman with a lot of fine woodworking experience (cabinetry, furniture, interior trim, and some remodeling. I feel rather certain about my ability to judge what I can/can't do myself and to determine if the work of other tradesmen is suitable. But the huge and complicated project of building a home my family and I have to live in is a little daunting. Your information helps me understand the sequence of steps much better. Thanks! By the way - somewhere in your info you mentioned you built in a Southern state. Do you mind telling me what state, or at least, did you build in Tennessee?

Response:

Hello Drew,

Thanks for the comments, It is always good to hear that the site is helping folks. I built in Texas. I wish I had the skills you do it would have saved me a bundle!

All the best building your home,

George Stevens
