Have a personal build blog? Link it here!

I have LOVED looking through all the blogs that have been linked in various posts. I don't know anyone in 'real life' who has built or is building, so this forum and these blogs have become my own little support system!

So if you have a blog from a past, current or future build, link it here! I would love to read it. :)

Don't be shy!

I will link mine too but it is pretty boring since we have not broken ground yet...

Thanks dpusa! I just know I will forget all the details if I don't write them down. :) Congrats on your new land!

I hope others chime in on this thread because I have seen some great ones linked in other posts!

Here is ours. Not too exciting yet, but our final plans are being drawn up now and we hope to break ground in January. I started the blog to keep our family and friends updated, but I may get it printed into a book when it's all done. Thought it might be neat to be able to flip thru a book and see the progress from start to finish.

Here is our blog, just started back updating it. Its long but details everything and nice to have as I would have forgotten all of the details. It was a long year of selling previous house and building a new one. My advice to everyone, choose your builder wisely as our home build wasn't that enjoyable!

We moved into our house in February. This site has been a godsend throughout the process of building.

Xclusive: Man, that is really frustrating all the things you have gone through! But hopefully your blog will help someone else avoid those things in the future. I cannot believe the grinder pump! I would have had a serious case of the ragies about that one.

ICFGreen: Your house is just lovely! It looks like you really made it reflect you. The kitchen is beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

Our house is finished (April 2012 we finally moved in after 2 years). Here is our room-by-room blog. We took off most of the in-progress pictures although there are still a few of them mixed in.

@icf green - I looked at your home blog and love the wall color palette in your home. Can you tell me what color you used in the kitchen? Our daughter is doing a semi custom build and wants to use gray on her walls and your kitchen looks like a gray color??? I'm curious to know the color name.

RE: Have a personal build blog? Link it here!

We're at a very early stage (we own our lot and are working on finalizing our plans) but I've just started a blog about it.

I'm new to the forum, looking forward to getting to know everyone!

I'm new to this forum and have found it so helpful! As all of you know there are so many questions you have and decisions to make, that its nice to have as much input as you can. And its especially helpful to have input from those who are in the process of building a home. I have read all of the blogs that have been linked and enjoyed them all! We just got our preliminary plans 2 days ago and I just loved them. But after pouring over them for the past two days there are a lot of changes that we want to make. I'd love to hear any of your suggestions!

RE: Have a personal build blog? Link it here!

This is so cool! Thanks, sweet.reverie for starting this! Although my blog is not exclusively for building, I do blog about our build.

Good morning.
I have posted our blog on here before but wanted to kind of bump it.
I hope this does not go against any policies on here, but thought it was a cool opportunity for ya'll.

My wife has been putting together a very detailed binder with all of the details of our build and it is proven to be extremely useful. She made a very detailed set of binder tabs, dividers, etc...that help organizing your build very easy and efficiently. She recently decided to compile all of the materials and offer the kit for sale on Etsy (this is not a sales call!)
I did just want to let you all know that my wife has decided to kick off her Etsy store by giving away one of the organizational binder kits to one lucky. Just go to the most recent blog post and leave a comment (yep, it's that easy), and BLAM you are entered.

Again, if this post is in violation of any rules on here, just let me know and I will remove it, but in the mean time, check it out!

Hi! I love the Building a Home forum, and have been a long time reader of everyone's posts. So much great information, ideas, and suggestions! Also a lot of horror stories, which is kind of scary, and hope we don't experience! I finally joined now that we're building :)

This is the blog I started to document our journey. I think someone above said they might turn their blog in to a book someday, and I thought that was such a great idea. This is our first home, so we kept it within our budget, so nothing extravagant. Just a little 1700 sq ft semi-custom (probably the wrong term, but it's what I'm going with) home, that we're really excited about!

We're from Oklahoma by the way... haven't seen too many Okies on here. Sorry to bring an old thread back to life, but thanks for reading, if you do!

I know this thread is old, but I have enjoyed looking at your blogs! My husband and I are first time home builders in Colorado. We are using a production builder and are customizing as much as they'll let us :) . We hope to move into our humble abode in March- now that we're in the drywall stage, I'm really enjoying reading up on how quickly things went (or didn't go) for you all!
