It depends on the type of house, the location and other factors. I can build a standard house on a crawl space in Atlanta in 3-4 months. A standard house in Maryland has a basement and is subject to much more stringent environmental requirements, so it's more like 4-6 months. In some places, permits take a week or two; in others, the same permits can take 8-12 months.Is it normal for houses there to take so long? Up here a halfway decent spec home can be done in 3 months or so, even of the nicer, more luxury-ended ones.
So, there are a lot of variables. That said, the OP seems to be doing a lot of things sub optimally and is taking a lot longer than he should be to get to where he is. He may have gotten in over his head with multiple projects simultaneously...
