For years I have dreamed of being able to build a modern house on the cheap. Circumstances have kept me from chasing it, but 2019 looks like it could be the year to make this happen. This blog will document my journey from idea to design to plans, loan and building. Up to and including move in day whenever that is. For more details, sign up for the newsletter which contains even more information and pictures for subscribers.
So let’s cut to the chase. What about my house? Well, I like Industrial/Minimalist style very much, so that will be the design type. I have a very strict building budget of $150,000. This way it can be affordable to a wide variety of people. One other requirement I have is that the house be modular. For my purposes what that means is that certain parts of the house can be left unfinished at certain stages and still look good. This way the homeowner can finish as time and budget allow and not feel the pressure to finish everything at once.
I will provide more details in future posts, but this is just a hello. Check in frequently because my mistakes, missteps and outright failures will serve, hopefully to educate you and as well as make you laugh.
