I did build my own home, but I wasn't the GC. I was able to build through a program called Habitat for Humanity. As part of the reqirements for ownership I had to perform 500 hours of what they called "Sweat Equity"; where I had to help build my home and homes for other deserving families. The hours I donated counted as my down payment; and I got to learn a lot about construction. I've even applied for quite a few construction jobs over the past few years, and was surprised that a lot of the contractors were very open to hiring a woman.
