One of my favorite magazines is Mother Earth News. If you’ve never read their magazine, you might want to go to their website and see if you like it.

I think that you could build it for less if you were able to use recycled material for your siding, purchased used or vintage windows and used or fallen tree timber for your trim.

What is stopping you from building your own home? This type of article is what inspired us to build our own place. It all starts with a dream and if you can dream it you can build it.
Do you dream of making a move to the country or building a small home one day? Tell me about it, please share your story.
