I'm rather excited about this prospect. I work as a lead carpenter in our area. I've gotten to be involved with some rather nice houses over the past couple of decades. Here's one recent example... Cast Architecture
Now I probably won't build this modern/sterile, after all, I live in the Methow and a Met-house has got to have some funk! I get to play on a house of my own! Sahweet.
Our plan is to rebuild the barn this fall and work on the plans/premitting for the house, this winter. Start up in spring...
That is a great opportunity to build your own. If the insurance payout is favorable, you might beat the number and have some dough left over since you are the gc. Good luck with permitting, maybe they will go easy on residents after the disaster.
Small world, I did a project with Cast in Seattle before I retired.
