This detailed step by step guide to constructing your own home has helped over a quarter of a million people with little or no experience in carpentry or construction, to take pride in building, remodeling, and repairing, their home without the need of expensive architects,  Contractors, or Subcontractors.
Like many people who grow tired of throwing their hard earned money away on rental units, the author of this book decided to take a leap of faith and build his own home on his own. He was immediately faced with two major obstacles.  The first being that he had never built anything in his life, and the second was that everyone but his wife thought he was crazy to take on such a huge, and expensive project without any experience.  Nonetheless, his goal was to build a home for him and his wife that could stand up to any house built by a professional contractor, both in quality and appearance.
A year after the onset of this major enterprise he accomplished his feat, and they moved into their beautiful new home. At this point he decided that if he could build his own home, then others could as well.  To facilitate this process, he put together this detailed guide to home building.
Whether you are a novice or an experienced builder, the author will guide you through every step of the construction process.  Beginning with an evaluation of your pre-construction goals such as; Financing your project, selecting a building site, gathering tools of the trade, Designing your home, and many more.
You will then be guided in detail, through every aspect of building and erecting your new home.  Having gone through this endeavor himself, the author does a wonderful job of describing every aspect of this process, beginning with the excavation of the building site and leading you through the erection of the house itself. Every step is explained in great detail from beginning to end.  This book is a must for anyone intending to build a new home, refurbish an older home, or simply adding to their existing home.
