There are a number of factors to be considered when you want to build your own house. These must be fully understood BEFORE you buy a fixer or vacant land for your project. You do not want to own a lot and then discover that you cannot build your dream house (or the way you want it constructed) because of restrictions due to say slope density, legal access, easements, soil, geology, hydrology including drainage, building codes, seismic protections, etc. The list is long and each and every aspect must be dealt with before committing to a property and the venture itself.
It does not mean that one should shy away from constructing one's house. Contact me and we can discuss how to proceed.
