Someday I will build a house house

There are many types of owner built homes. I dream of building myself one someday. My favorite is stone but there are straw, cordword and even paper.

House plans for owner builders

Country plans has some nice simple plans for owner-builders. They have an active forum. Check out the articles, especially An Owner Built Home & Thought experiments; it's about a 60 year old guy that built his own house and how it's all in your head. Maybe I can do this when I'm 70. That leaves me 12 years to get situated.

This is the Victoria's Cottage, and I like the lofts with overlooks. I would want to have second floor decks too.

    Designing and building our own home has been very rewarding. It is a whole family project, part of our homeschooling and part of our shared family dream. In our case we'll be moving out of a big drafty, hard to maintain 200 year old farm house and into a efficient, small earth sheltered home - our tiny cottage.
