    ok. since buying a house these dayd is just rediculous, around here, they are getting around 300,000.oo for a 3 bedroom ranch, i have decided to look for a piece of propert and just sub contract out the house. my friends father said he has all the people to build from the ground up, at a discount, adn he has plenty of time to oversee the building.

    also, anyone have access to house plans? like full blueprints with all data needed?

    any info at all about building your own home would be greatly appreciated.

    if you want something simple just go to your local magazine rack and get one of those house plans mags.

    Steelbuildings are the way to go.
    web page

    I plan on getting the 4500 sq ft Four Plex model. The ground floor will be a garage and storage room. The upstairs will be the living quarters /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Well - At least thats MY plan. I notice the prices just went up, that model was 55k about a month or two ago. DAMNIT
