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 . . .

About the author (2008)

My wife and I are an average hardworking couple who built the “House of Our Dreams” while maintaining our careers with no prior experience in the house building field. We took on the role of the General Contractor/Overseer to save money. While acting as "Our Own General Contractor," We had the luxury to "Totally Customize" Our House to Our Needs. Without all of the "Hidden Cost" that a Commercial General Contractor would have charged us. We tell how we did it, "Robbing Peter to Pay Paul..."   My wife and I are far from Royalty,  but our Family Dog holds that Noble Honor.  Our Dog's name is Klaus von Rudy Ruffwuuf. Thanks for reading over this material. My wife and I hope we have enticed you to purchase the Book.

Best of Luck,

Whether You're tackling the duties of a General Contractor... or Hiring a Professional... or just adding on a New Addition... This Book will Educate and Encourage You So the Right Choices can be made in Any Situation.
