    Definately www.howstuffworks.com . It will help alot with the unforeseen home repairs you will have to make once you become a proud new homeowner.

    lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you remember that I'm married.... right? :grin: and yes, right now the plan is a 1290 sq ft house... with a 1200 sq ft shop. :grin: Actually the house will be added on to at some point... so it'll "stay ahead" of the shop size. As far as I know, I have to have a bigger house than shop, otherwise you need some kind of cool permit or exemptions or something. :dunno:

    At any rate, howthingswork.com is cool... anyone got anything else?

    Most of the homes are of the "mobile" variety. Instead of fixing, they get recycled:D :haha:

    lol, its all good. I have been renting a manufactured home for the last three years. It kinda sucks, but at least it has a shop and lots of elbow room. :thumb: Our next house will definitely be stick-built...
