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.

Homeless housing-I could do that


I've been kind of losing the dream lately. But I definitely could do this. This group makes micro houses for the homeless. It costs less than $1000, probably a lot less if you scrounged up materials (It's amazing what they throw away at construction sites.) These guys even tell you how to make a stove out of metal buckets. The pictures are not very instructive, but they have lists of materials that they use.

    Kitty,
    Don't lose the dream. I built a shed in my backyard 10x12 for about 1200. It looks great and a little more you could build a nice house.
    Use www.tumbleweedhouses.com for ideas. Start small.

    Here you have another supporter. I am starting my log home project and I'll post the development on my website. We can do our homes step by step. It will be time consuming, but we'll make it.

    This is one excellent idea! Homeless housing could also be used to help homeless veterans as well. Helping others is one of the great opportunities we have to bless someone. Thank you for sharing.
