The Art of Homebuilding

One thing that greatly surprised me during my interactions with the actual people who built my house (as opposed to the general contractor) was the many times I would find them trying to figure out how to deal with a particular challenge. It seemed like every time I turned around there was something new that they had not encountered before. There was much learning on the fly and I learned right along with them. I would recommend that anyone contemplating building a house plan on spending at least an hour a day (broken into two visits) at the site interacting with the various sub-contractors. With our house it was the only way to keep things on track.
