Well, we're finally going to build our house next year and we're planning on doing much of it ourselves. As far as framing goes, we have been discussing the costs of 2x6 construction vs. 2x4. I would like to use the 2x6 construction but it adds so much cost into the building process and I would have to scale back on some of the ammenities. 2x4 construction would allow us to splurge in other areas of the house, like the kitchen appliances or a higher quality woodstove. Opinions/comments needed!!!
