Build Your Own Home
Building a home is expensive. Any ways you can save money without cutting corners or compromising the integrity of your structure should be looked at. It is never a good idea to build something as important as a house in a way that will be unsafe for its occupants, but there are a lot of good ways to make every dollar count. Reusing building materials that are still safe and worthy will not only save you lots of money, it will be healthy and helpful for the environment, too.Find homes that are being demolished and talk to the owners. Sometimes the home is auctioned off for the building materials. The auctioneer will take the crowd through the home one window at a time and finally sell off the remaining structure. The frame of the house is made of the 2 by 4's or 2 by 6's that you will need.
