Default Need help on first AK 74 build

I'm a guy who always buys American products and could care less about the rest. Then on Nov. 5 while my son was getting himself an M&P Sport 5.56, I saw an AK next to it and asked to check it out. It was like a light switch got turned on. I haven't been able to stop looking into this rifle ever since. I want this firearm for family/home defense and I want to have fun shooting targets out in the field. I'm intrigued by the caliber and history of the 74 and that's what I've chosen to build. I have a list of the parts I'll need and am going to purchase them to get started. I've been told NOT to try to build it by myself and was hoping to get with knowledgeable people in Orange Co. or close to it. Any help would be much appreciated. THANKS!
