First of all, “Sweat-Equity, building a house at half cost”, is a hands-on ebook. It teaches us the benefits and explains the advantages of doing all the work.
The important thing is to make the decision to build a house by yourself and that will benefit you in more ways than you can imagine.
Sometimes we really feel like a sailboat in the ocean without a sail. The world just kind of tosses us all around and runs our lives.
Building your own house creates more than just a house, it creates a powerful financial tool with equity, it teaches valuable skills, and it gives a sense of accomplishment that you can be proud of.
These things are a way of grabbing hold of your life and directing your course. Suddenly you’re filled with hope and confidence that you’ve never had before.
You will also have a sense of financial security because of all the sweat-equity from your own labor. The work will pay off in many ways.
Confidence breeds more confidence. It’s a sense of victory that you will have earned.
This book, sweat-equity, teaches how to take back what belongs to us, our money and our time. It belongs to us and we need it more than the wealthy people who run most people’s lives.
Sweat-equity is about changing a part of our culture that needs to be changed.

My newsletter keeps you up to date on home construction and design ideas.
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.
Benny Luis Lopez,
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.
