Hello everyone - our site is full of information that will assist anyone considering building a home themselves.
Home construction is a major effort and probably the single largest investment the average person will make during their lifetime. Because of this, it is not something you should begin without a full understanding of the effort involved.
When this site was originally published
in 1993, it was to let you know the pitfalls of building your own home by taking you through the construction of our original dream home.
Since then, we have also reported on the construction of my son's log home and now, because of our age and my husband's health, we need to downsize our home and acreage. We started
by getting our home ready to sell, a project lasting more than 14 months.
Our dream home was put on the market and sold within 3 months which was quite a bit quicker that anticipated.
We were not prepared to start our new home and had to come up with
temporary housing in a hurry!
Our new "dream home" will get underway
very soon and I will be letting you know how it's going. Since my husband is unable to help, I will be acting as general contractor myself. A daunting task to say the least. If you would like to follow our progress,
bookmark this page as I will be posting weekly updates.
