Hi- My name is Jay, and I am building a house in upstate SC. The house is all-ICF with a walk-out basement, situated on 7 acres near the mountains. I am a toolmaker by trade, but have done pretty much every phase of house building over the years. I'm doing about 90% of the work by myself, alone, with help brought in for the earth work and anything else that is just to big for one old guy working alone.
My wife and I are empty-nesters, and building a small house to retire in. Needless to say, I take the whole DIY thing to extremes, but I have plenty of questions, and maybe I'll even be able to answer other folks questions. I'm looking forward to hanging out here a lot!
