Building time?

I'm looking at building my first rod. A 9' 5 wt., probably 4 piece. A couple of questions, what is the rough building time like for a beginner? Any suggestions on rod to build, I noticed some cheap kits ($69) from performance rods by dave lewis. Are these any good? I don't want to start with a $500 sage and screw it up but then again I don't want to have a rod I don't like to use. Hook and Hackle might be another source, any advice on their blanks?

Thanks
