You can build your own house
I did it and you can too!
The first time I thought about building my own house, I spent many hours looking for information. I found many sites dedicated to selling me a product, a book or wanting to build my house for me, but I could not find a site dedicated to the creator of owners created by an owner builder. Many wanted me to join a program to build my house or be cheated to obtain a financing scheme. Build Your Own Home is here to help you create an Owner in the real world.
Building my own house was one of the greatest adventures of my life. It was so good that every time I tell my wife that I want to do it again, she, well. . Let me get back on track.
If you are here reading this, it is probably because you are in the process of building your own home or are considering building your own home.
As you have already heard, there are many options and strategies to build your own home. I will take some time and present everything I learned as clearly as I can to help you build your own house too!
I have even included a free newsletter to get one or two suggestions that I will add to the page later.
Building your own home can be one of the greatest achievements of your life. Do not let me overlook that you can save 20% to 40%, or more, by doing so. We had 30% capital the day we moved. Not bad for a normal guy! Just think what someone so INTELLIGENT AS YOU CAN DO !!
I propose that we proceed along the logical path. Now I'm scared! Actually, there is a logical way to approach building your own house. First, collect all the information you can about housing construction and the construction of your own home, in the most humanly possible way. As we all know, the best way to make a good decision about something is to gather all the information we can, analyze it and move on. Then, buy a lot of materials and start hammering and nailing everything together. Right? Incorrect! If you're like me, it would take ten years and the result would be alarming at best!
So the logic (here I go) says, that we have to employ others to help us build our own house, unless we are superhuman builders with many helpers. That was not my case at all; Both my wife and I were employed and very busy all the time. What are the options? I thought you would never ask for it!
Note: If this is your first visit, it is a good idea to follow the pages in order. This will give you a good general description of the site and the process of building your own home.
Each month I publish a newsletter that covers a variety of topics to help those of you who build your own home. Please subscribe below for your free copy!
