Building the house is THE best thing I've ever done

DW and I built our house ourselves, too. Actually, we subcontracted most of the work ourselves and did all the finish work with our own hands. We have about $60K in sweat equity that helped us build a lot of wealth relatively quickly. Also, we learned a ton and the sense of accomplishment would be hard to match.
