Very easy or very difficult, depending on your experience and choice of project. I'd start with a kit in your place. Keep in mind that building a tube amp is very dangerous! You need to think twice what you do.

Please search. This topic is discussed very frequently, and by simply reasking it again, you are likely to get incomplete responses.

First I doubt you need 100W. Few people need more than 20W. I use 3-5W amps now adays. What the specs of the speakers you plan on using?
I've never dealt with kits before but I would highly suggest the El Cheapo schematic (its on the web somewhere). Before you start tube amps though learn about how speakers work and invest in a decent pair of efficient speakers.

Also don't build amps like me:
Throw something together that looks like it might work and then pray it doesn't kill you when you throw the on switch.
