The times are dictating a new look at how the essentials of life, such as housing, are gotten. This book lays out a successful way to achieve more living at less cost. It will appeal to do-it-yourselfers across the spectrum of schoolteachers with summers off, municipal workers such as firemen who have two or more days a week free, and retirees itching to get their hands into useful work. For people who like working with their hands, this is a fun, often humorous road map to getting a mortgage-free home or weekend cabin, or alternatively, owning a larger home for a modest investment.
From planning your home or cabin to building it, this book guides you through the process of buying your land at a bargain price, building your house or cabin for 30 cents on the dollar, and ENJOYING it! The book shows how to deal amicably with building inspectors, finance the little that your new home does cost, and much more.
