Here is my house. Minus the foundation, plumbing/heating, insulation and drywall. I built it myself with some help from a few people on framing and electrical. 16 hour days suck but I’m proud of the finished product. That’s a 14/12 pitch, When it needs re-roofed, I’m hiring it out.

congratulations Tony. How long did it take you?

I know the hours were long but the satisfaction you got from doing this is priceless. Besides you saved yourself some serious $$$.

I don’t blame you on the roof. They don’t pay those guys enough for what they do.

Man, that’s a lot of work. Makes my projects look like toys.

How long did it take?

It took about 7 months until move-in and then another month of finishing touches( like a bathroom) until it was done. Actually, I still have nail holes to fill and my wife has some more built-ins for me to do.
