Re: Guidance Needed
Not sure what your time frame is for this website that you want to build. As it stands it doesn't sound like you have a tight time frame or deadline that you have to meet. As such I would recommend that you look into building a website with a content management system CMS for short. You have a lot of options here, but the big names in the game are Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla. You are probably accustomed to seeing them with blogs, but there is also a large group of people that use them to make static websites.
The reason that I recommend a CMS is that you are looking to have a client login which in and of itself isn't that hard to code or right, but with most CMS's they come with a number of plugins that you can add the functionality without having to code a single line. Another thing is that there are a ton of themes out there that you can use for your website, or you can use as a template and then build on them.
Lastly on the comment about your paying someone, as a web developer I can tell you that it takes a lot of time to make website that is functional and does exactly what the client wants. As long as you are willing to put in the time I don't see a reason why you can't do it yourself, but understand that you are at the bottom of a large hill and the only way to the top is up.
