Awesome Material!! Highly Recommended subject
on 22 June 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
This book is Wonderful in Many many respects and I Highly recommend it because to me the subject matter is indispensable. He's complete, thorough, etc. The one thing he is Not is concise. Great, great material and very well covered - but be prepared for a read that is occasionally tedious. I read through it anyway :) Also, be prepared for the discussion of a few other odd topics. He talks about salary free living, college, etc. Most of it's logical; such as going to college only if you have a career picked and must have the degree for it. College is Wonderful - but if you don't know what to do, wait. This is the sort of thing that he spends long paragraphs on. Again - good read; totally worthwhile. Just be prepared. His information is solid and useful. He covers the whole process and what to expect as you go. He discusses adaptations for individuals. He even helps you decide if it's right for you at all, and openly admits that in some situations it's not. In most situations it is the best way to go about home ownership - but if you're 2years from retirement and finishing your mortgage at the same time... or if you have a spouse that will leave if you live in a temporary shelter for a couple years while you build, etc. He gives reasonable ways to decide if this fits you and your family, and if so how to make the adaptations needed to fit it to your life. Good luck :)

This book contains some very interesting information on becoming an owner-builder. The advice herein acknowledges that this book cannot provide detailed construction information and refers the reader to other in-depth books. While the advice is primarily about the problems associated with building a house, the author also goes off on tangents that have nothing to do with the subject at hand. This can become annoying and seems to take up multiple pages in which the author could instead have elaborated more on some aspect of land-buying or home-building. All in all, this is an interesting read, even though I'm not sure that some of the projects built in the 1970's could be built today, considering modern zoning.
This country would be better off if this was required reading in school.

This is an updated version of the book "Mortgage Free" that shows you what works, and what doesn't when trying to construct an owner built home. From financing, to getting an architects stamp of approval, to different methods of construction. You'll never be able to look at a regular row of stick built homes in the same light again.

This book has some very useful information
Should be required in high school as part of curriculum
on 23 May 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
Unfortunately we do not educate our children to be conservationists. Most of them grow up to be consumers, indebted to the banks all their lives through mortgages, car loans, credit cards etc. This book is a must read for everyone and it should be required in high school as part of the curriculum,
