In 2005 my wife Brook and I built our current home. With the help of our families, lots of leftover material from Noah Herman Sons Builders, and many nights and weekends, we built one the most beautiful homes in the entire area. We have now lived in the house for 3 years and have decided it is time to put the house up for sale and rent a home for a couple years while we build another house and start the process over again. Three years is a magic number for living in the house, because we dont have to pay the 30% capitol gains tax by doing so.
Building a house during weeknights and weekends is no easy task and is more work than you can feasibly imagine, but with the resources and work ethic I have been blessed with, it is just about the best way I can provide a nice home for my family and still be able to put food on the table as well.
