Does anyone have anything to add to this?

I am curious about the common mistakes or the things you think about until it is to late.
The hardest part is getting past the mental blocks about what you are capable of doing.

Uhhh.... don't paint yourself into a corner? ;)

I took a look at a couple of those URL's, above, and I was wondering if any of the books that John recommends have at least as much detail?


FHB had an article about that a couple of years ago.  Written by a code enforcement guy....inspector.

Title was something like...10 Most Common Mistakes in New Construction.  Me, being of a certain age, can't remember what they were. :-[

They often post old magazine articles on their web site.  Might check there.
