You Can Build Your Own Home
I Did and So Can You!

When I first considered building my own home I spent many hours searching for information. I found many sites dedicated to selling me a product, a book, or wanting to build my home for me, but I could not find one site dedicated to the owner builder that was created by an owner builder. Many wanted me to join a program to build my home, or trick me into a financing scheme. Build Your Own Home is here to help you the Owner Builder in the real world.

Building my own home was one of the greatest adventures of my life. It was so great that every time I tell my wife I want to do it again, she, well. . Let me get back on track.

If your are here reading this, it is probably because you are either in the process of building your own home, or considering home construction on your own.

As you may have already found out, there are many choices and strategies for building your own home. I will take some time and lay out everything that I learned as clearly as I can to help you build your own home too!

I have even included a free newsletter for you to get a tip or two that I will add to the page later.

Building your own home can be one of the greatest accomplishments of your life. Don't let me leave out that you can save 20% to 40%, or more, doing it. We had 30% equity the day we moved in. Not bad for a regular guy! Just think what somebody as SMART AS YOU ARE CAN DO!!

I propose that we proceed the logical way. Now I am scared! Really, there is a logical way to approach building your own home. First collect as much information as you can about home construction and building your own home, as humanly possible. As all of us know, the best way to make a good decision about something is collect all the information that we can, analyze it, and move forward. Then, buy a bunch of materials and start hammering and nailing it all together. Right? Wrong! If you're anything like me, it would take ten years and the result would be alarming at best!

So logic (there I go again) says, that we have to employ others to help us build our own home, unless we are super human 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? Thought you would never ask!

Note: If this is your first visit, it is a good idea to follow the pages in order. This will give you a good overview of the site and the Building Your Own Home Process.
