Swankette, Welcome to the Chatroom. DIYing can be fun and a real learning experience. We are all here to help you with questions and even opinions if need be. I can see why you would want to do some of the installation in your new home. Make sure you and the Builder are in agreement as far as what each of you will be doing. Most likely, unless you are planning to have most of the home built and then finish the remainder yourself, you would be required to go with the Builders schedule to prevent slowing him down. It CAN be done, but make sure you have the time to devote to each project you wish to do. Good luck with all your future projects.


If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.

Thanks, majakdragon! We are planning to have most of the house built, then completing the rest ourselves. As I told my husband, I don't see the point of paying for 30 years for things we could do ourselves. My father-in-law built his entire log cabin w/a walkout basement for about $40,000 because he was able to do nearly all the work himself. We won't be able to build our house that cheap, but hopefully it will greatly reduce our costs by doing some of the work ourselves. That is why I am researching products and learning how to install/finish/etc. now so that hopefully we will be able to do it right.
