A little extra of everything

Progress on the house was relatively slow during the latter half of the winter. Most activity at the project site happened in bursts, often separated by long periods of unavoidable but occasionally frustrating inactivity.

One piece of advice I would give to any owner-builder is to have a little “extra” of everything. Extra time, extra money, extra patience, extra flexibility, etc, etc, etc. Projects rarely fly fully off the rails, but they also rarely go totally right. It’s risky to be right up against your limits, and having a bit of a buffer is key.
