Scott’s House – The Book

Wow, it feels like it has been ages since I’ve posted here.  Actually, it has.  Almost a year.

Well, I haven’t exactly been resting on my laurels.  When I last posted, we were about 2 weeks from moving in to our house, Holly was going through surgery and I was at my wits end with work, manging the project and having a wife in really bad shape.  Keeping this site up wasn’t exactly a top priority.

Since then, Holly has gotten better (almost back to 100%) & we’ve been enjoying our house.  It has really been awesome and we regularly look around and can’t believe that it is ours.

I’ve been wanting to do a post summarizing everything that we learned through the project.  It turns out, when I started writing it, that we learned a lot.  41 pages to be exact.  So rather than putting it into a single post or a bunch of posts, I’ve done something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time, write an ebook.

Building Castles is the entire story of remodel project.  How we picked a contractor, an architect, how we financed it, how we picked things out, how we kept everything on track so that we were able to move in early and almost on budget.

Check out the site.  If you are working on designing your house, I think that you will get a lot out of it.

Good luck.

    I hope that Holly is well. My best wishes for you both and your family! You don’t know me. I was searching for the origin of “I’ll be here all week. Try the veal.” And stumbled on your website! Your house is lovely! I WISH I had the creativity & talent that you have!!!!! We have lived in NJ in our 10 yr young home for 7 years and although beautiful, it has no warmth or character. It is one of five models in a neighborhood of 50 homes. So you see the SAME house OVER and again. We are finalizing plans on our new kitchen today. So your photos were great. Just for fun, can you send me the “before” pictures so I can compare? Be Well!
