Overview

Yes, You Can Still Build Your Dream House and Still have Money for Your Retirement and even Send Your Kids to College . . .

Save 30% to 40% 0n Your New Home . . .

This could be anywhere from $50,000, $100,000 or $200,000 or even More . . . Depending on How Big You Build !!!

My wife and I built a $ 750,000 home for less than $ 500,000. We took on the responsibility of the General Contractor. We had no prior experience in the home building process, but were able to pull off one of the biggest accomplishments a couple could ever tackle together. In the book, I explain the whole gamut from start to finish. There were many obstacles along the way, but we managed to overcome them even though we thought that the end of the world was near. I wrote the book in a humorous style which is reflected in the title. Whenever my wife and I ran into unexpected expenses or a Contractor took more of our hard earned money, I used the phrase, "So You Want To Be Your Own General Contractor." In the book I have illustrations that accompany the text. Many of the illustrations represent crazy moments during the construction. Each chapter has an illustration at the beginning of the text. I used a bulldog to represent myself and drew my family as bulldogs as well. Once the reader has read the book, he or she will understand what a "True-Build" means, which will help them to decide if they would like to take on the duties of a General Contractor . . . or Hire a Professional. Either way, the book will help the Future Homebuilder to . . . Save Tons of Money . . .
