Hello everybody, I've been in construction for some time now and can do most things by myself. Of course it would take some time, but how much money do you thing it would take me to build my own house? I'm talking about a simple 3 bed, 2 bath, 2 car garage house. I would do everything myself. Everything except the rough in plumbing and rough electrical. Any response would be appreciated, thanks J.

So I guess one of the "most things" you can't do is estimating.

Its simple... how much are you making now? It will take about 2500 man hours to build that house by hand (rough guesstimate) and it will of course, require you to buy the materials.

For the labor part of it, how much do you make in about 16 months? That's about how much its gonna cost you in labor if you do all the work.
