Ready-made sites and website templates can be useful as a starting point when building your site, but they're rarely a time-saver, and they're not usually any easier. You still have to change things to make them your own, and you often need to re-jig navigation systems and create new graphics yourself.
It's much easier to create it yourself from scratch because at least you know what everything is and where it should go. If you have to spend your time tweaking someone else's stuff, or trying to modify things, breaking them and spending time fixing them again... well. Like Adrian said, you'd be better off spending that time learning how to do it right.
