I swear this isn't spam, I just thought this might be helpful to a community such as this one, especially since it hasn't been updated in awhile. I was reading my dad's blog this morning, thinking how cool it is that my dad has a blog, and also thinking about how I was enjoying reading his post about raised slab foundation, even though I'm not very knowledgeable about building at all. Just your average apartment-renter. My dad gets traffic to his blog and website as it is, but since I'm a livejournaler at heart, I thought I might make a syndicated RSS account for his blog and tell some people about it.
The syndicated account is here: buildahouse So you can add that to your friends list.
Or if you prefer another blog reader, his blog url is http://buildorremodelyourownhouse.blogs
He's a super-knowledgeable guy about homebuilding, cost estimating, and contractors. His main website, http://www.byoh.com, is also really interesting to read and thorough. Everything on it is free, like cost estimating software and eBooks and tons of articles.
Okay, so there's my plug for my dad - Hope someone finds this useful!
