Tear down and build dream home- how to start...

6 years ago

I own a house in Edmonds, WA and have tenants in it now. I want to tear it down and build a house for the entire family as eco-friendly as possible and considering that we may have elderly parents and college age children living with us. I found some plans I like but I don't know whether I buy the plans and then find the builder or vice versa. How much can I do on my own to keep costs down and when is it worth getting professionals involved? How do I find where my plot map is and will it show the measurements of my plot? What is the timeline for building? Tear down to move in... So many questions and I am not sure where to start.
