If you want to have the house that you truly desire, please please please take your time. I can honestly say I spent more time thinking about what I was going to do and how I could make it better than actually building the house. Youll have a hundred ideas about what you want but you have to settle on one, and once its done it is very difficult to tear things apart and start over. So I stress to you, think ten steps ahead. Think about how each and every thing will effect your progress further down the line. I decided after I had built my frame that I wanted some sort of utility room on the outside of the house. Luckily it all came together and worked out better than I thought it would.
