"I would love to find a step by step checklist of construction process. In other words,
1. buy property
2. get septic design approval
3. excavation and foundation
4. frame house
Does a simple progression with checklists and (checks) exist?
I know that builders follow the same process each time they build a house.
Yes, such a list does exist and it is on www.byoh.com.
Check out "Building a House Step by Step"
(I need to find a better way for readers to find stuff on my web site)
