Extra information here please (some detail)::

We have $30,000 as a down payment. My wife and I need an additional loan of $200,000 to build our home and fully landscape. This includes purchase all of the furniture and decorations. We are having a difficult time finding a lender to loan us the money and would like some suggestions. What we can do to put us in a better position to find the funds we need. We have the lot already purchased and serviced. The plans are in place designed by an architect, but have not proceeded to get permits or hire contractors. We do not have a lot of experience managing contractors and are also considering hiring a general contractor to manage the entire project for us. Is this a good idea? Should we do this or just try it on our own.
