A Bill Update – House Building

Ok so I guess I blatantly lied about backing off the blog for a bit. I actually have a few things to talk about, so I figured I’d share. Problem is, none of it is sports game related. Right now, my sports game time is very limited (actually it is completely limited to my OOTP6 and Front Office Football leagues). After the baseball rush, it’s time for me to get back to work doing other genres until the football games come out. Oh, I do have an opening in my FoF league if anyone is interested. If so, let me know.

I’m currently reviewing Warlords Battlecry 3, a real time strategy game from Enlight and Infinite Interactive. Pretty cool game. I love real time games that allow you to pause and issue orders, otherwise it just becomes too frantic for me. The problem with WBC3 is that the multiplayer code is broken–literally it doesn’t work. But if you want a good solo fantasy RTS, give this a look.

But the real reason I’m blogging today is that we’re in the process of buying some land and having a house built. Actually, the house building isn’t close to starting, but we’re considering buying some land (1 1/2 acres for about $42,000). It’s north of Columbus, actually I’d consider this in the country–we’d be about 15 miles from the north end of Columbus. Check out the street name: N 3 B & K ROAD. Yeah, I don’t get it either.

Anyway, if anyone out there has had a house built and has any advice, feel free to email me or leave a comment.

    Hey Bill. I built my house about 2 years ago now. There are a lot of hints but no way I could list them all. The biggest suggestion I have is to get a hold of a book called “Build it Right” by Myron E. Ferguson. It has LOTS of great info. It not only has the “basics” but other things most people would overlook. We made our builder change several things based on what we read in this book.The second biggest suggestion is that you should build for resell, not for yourself. What I mean by that is don’t do something so strange that it will hurt your chances of reselling the house, no matter how much you might like it.I’m sure you have my MSN contact info if you want to chat about it.Craig Tompkins
