I'll bet you get as many different answers as you get responders ! If you don't like building things,buy. If you want to build, it takes a lot of time - usually years, a lot of tools and the knowledge of how to use them. You will get more satisfaction out of building the plane you are flying than to buy someone elses work. (which may be of poor quality!)
When you learn to fly, get as much tail dragger time as you can.
When you finish building, you will have a lot more skills than the average pilot and most likely a safer one. You will also know your plane inside out! In the long run, whether you buy or build is a 'gut' decision you have to make.
