    A reviewer

    Thorough. I wish my banker, financer, accountant and attorney were as thorough as this Ms. Lang. For the novice, this text is priceless and will help avoid redo's whether on paper or in more expensive mediums -concrete,wood,wiring, and finishings. For the intermediate - second time homebuilder, the value will strike you with all those 'Hey, I remember this and I didn't remember that, but I will this time'. For the experienced, even the experts need a coach to guide them, and for the spouse, it's a neutral medium to build agreement without overdoing your emotional wants that drives the hubby to the bar and the wife to the jewlery store. The author clearly hunkered herself down to share her experience and passion. Rather than a Dummy's Guide, it's 'Don't Be an Idiot By Missing This Great Help that Will Save Your Sanity and Possibly Your Marriage So You Move In Together'.

    Great book for those building a custom home!

    Many helpful forms to use and clear and concise text to help make all those decisions!

    This review was originally an email to Ms. Lang, but the Contact

    This review was originally an email to Ms. Lang, but the Contact page on her website is a dead link.

    I read the book and while I have found it extremely helpful I am not for the life of me able to print
     the forms from my Nook reader. Pages do not match up - for example there is reference in the text that
    Appendix 1 is on page 348 - the Nook book is only 268 pages long! 

    Why is there no hypertext so that when a form is referenced, you can click on it and go to the form?

    Forms are not formatted properly to be able to print. Why?!?

    While I found the information provided helpful, perhaps even vital to completing a successful project,  
    the execution is severely lacking.
