The mis-adventures of the Bailey family building their own home Playing in the Yard on Bailey Bear Ridge
Playing in the Yard on Bailey Bear Ridge
Please remember, I do not claim to be any kind of a professional on any of this!!

Please do not take any thing on this site as a statement from a professional standpoint. I am not a builder, architect, designer or contractor. Information presented here fits in one of two categories:

1. My uneducated opinions

2. My feeble minded attempt to document what the professionals tell me. This means that I may have mistakes in my rendition of the professional's advice.

Nothing on this site should be taken as anything that constitutes legal responsibility. I am simply using this format to share our experiences as they happen. If you learn anything from the information presented here then I have achieved my goal. If you are planning to build any kind of home, I hope you will find something here that will help you on your way but we cannot be held responsible for errors in your judgment.

WHEN BUILDING YOUR OWN HOME YOU SHOULD PLAN TO GET ADVICE FROM PROFESSIONALS THAT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING! YOU SHOULD BE WILLING TO PAY A FEE FOR THAT INFORMATION, TOO. THIS INFORMATION IS WHAT MAKES THE PROFESSIONAL THE CACHE OF USEFUL INFORMATION THAT HE/SHE IS.

If you are building your own place you are probably doing it to save money, but a few hundred dollars or even a few thousand dollars spent ahead of time can save you thousands of dollars in changes to your home later and possible even your or your family's live! Value cannot be placed on that!

A perfect example it our weekend trip to the Davis Caves Earth Fest 2009 to consult on where we are right now. The fire escape upgrade mentioned on the Floor Plans page of this site was a result of that trip. Securing the safety of our two boys was worth FAR MORE than the $850 we spent that weekend and the time we took to tour the 7 homes on display!
It`s me and the boys
trying to figure things out!
