Good Questions: Web resources for home builders?

Feb 5, 2007

Hello AT --

I'm building a house and have found tremendous sites that help me with all the stuff I need to put in and around my house but I'm at a loss for a really good resource to help me with all the structural decisions I have to make.

Can you help direct me to great links for contemporary home buiding?

I'd love to find more smart and interesting ideas on the the big stuff like: windows choices, skylights, exterior siding ideas, roof choices (metal, sod, etc.), interior door choices and hardware, kitchen cabinets, floor materials (concrete, green wood etc.), interior stairs, counter materials etc.

Thanks for your help in advance -- I know this information is out there I just can't seem to find it in one or even several sites!

Dear Diana,

Have you looked at house blogs? Following the adventures of other folks who are doing the same thing (building or restoring a house) is a good way to glean info about their choices, and can be a short cut when you're wading through so many options., a large community of housebloggers, is a good place to start.

If you're going green, another good online resource is the Bay Area Green Home Guide.

Any other ideas out there?
