Electrical, Plumbing, and Insulation, OH MY!

Yesterday I had a chance to speak with the builder of the shouse buildings at length. I told him my ideas and we batted around numbers. Here is what I think I have discovered:
1. I am going to have to run my own electric.
2. I am going to have to run my own plumbing.
3. I am going to have to do my own insulating.
4. I am going to have to do my own wall board.
The gentleman I spoke with was very helpful, but the numbers would far exceed my budget (especially since I really want 2 buildings), and so I think that I am back to running all the wiring, plumbing, and insulating all by myself. At first I found this revelation greatly intimidating, but now I realize that if I wasn't such a careful planner, that might be true. However, knowing I will have a plan in place before I ever leave the Phoenix area, I know that I can do it and I will do it well.

So I am going to sit down and re-figure all the supplies I will need to accomplish these tasks and formulate my plan of attack. Stay turned for posts on my discoveries with all of these important systems. Meanwhile, I think I will be doing lots of reading.
