Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
I’m figuring that among my many readers (genuine and fake) there must be a few who have had a house built. You know: acquire the land, work with an architect, navigate the county permit system, etc.
Well, my better half and I are just beginning this process, and we’re experiencing the usual anxieties vis-a-vis money flying out the window, getting screwed by contractors, running into impossible-to-satisfy inspectors, and all the rest. If you’ve been through it all, please drop a comment in the box and offer some wisdom.
The photo above is in the vein of what we’re hoping to build. Very modern, clean, and open. We have a terrific lot in the Sierra Foothills, heart o’ Gold Country just up the hill from Sutter’s Mill, believe it or not. With any luck, we’ll have the house built and ready to live in by Spring ’17, maybe sooner.
Any tips or tricks you can offer will be much appreciated!
