I have a few free e-book downloads from my web site. I like to make free information and pictures readily available so my site visitors can better understand how to do things. Free downloads rule!!

This is my free e-book download that explains why we should build our own homes. It also explains why we are in such a terrible financial crisis and how we can get out of it as homeowners by making the right decisions.

There are several examples of professionally landscaped yards in this 10 minute video.

I just wanted to say that I love your website. My husband and I followed your instructions on building our own home. Most of the work we did ourselves, but not all. We saved $90,000 in labor costs and now have a beautiful home that we own.

I built my own home doing all my own labor. My house costs me around $70,000 for materials. It took me 8 months to build and is about 2,000 square feet. I didn't think I could do it, but your house web site encouraged me. I used all the info you had.

Thank you,

I can't thank you enough for your free information web site about home building. I was looking for Electrical wiring diagrams when I found your site. It was very helpful.

My wife and I lost our home to foreclosure but we kept a plot of land to start over. We are halfway through the construction of our house. Your website gave us hope to start over and build a house with low payments. We are in our late 60's but we find it rewarding to put so much effort into a project that will reward us for years to come.
