Novice Magnolia homebuilder shares experience

August 31st, 2009 · 44 Comments

A man who is building a custom home in Magnolia is sharing his experience on his blog A House By The Park .  Mike Davidson is chronicling the step by step process of the design, planning, and construction of his new home. 

Davidson has no home building experience and even though building a house is a private matter, he thinks the information he can provide outweighs the uncomfortableness of the task.  When he started, he found no source of information describing the start-to-finish process.  He is including every detail, including costs, on his site.

Davidson bought this Magnolia view home a little over a year ago and he knocked it down.  

Here is what the house looks like today as construction continues.

You can also watch the progress of the house via a live webcam.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
