Congrats are getting started.
I would strongly encourage you to join your local EAA chapter, if there's one nearby. Doing this could be your most important investment.
You will meet many experienced builders, and have a source of face-to-face problem solving, along with access to most of the unique tools that you'll use only once or twice.
And... you'll make new friends who know already share a common interest.
