A house is more than just a necessary shelter for survival. It is a dream fulfilled, pride, hope, happiness and so much more. But despite it being one of the basic necessities of life, becoming a homeowner is an unfulfilled dream for many owing to the exorbitant housing prices. But do you know that you might actually being paying more than you should for that readymade house or even that pre-owned house, where you might just have to spend so much extra for renovations later? Yes, it is actually cheaper to build your house from the scratch. Here are a few frequently asked questions answered.

How do I buy land?

There is no easy guide to buying your land so put in great thought about where you want and how much are you willing to shell out. Look for an optimal location depending on your needs as well as keeping your budget in consideration. Once the area is zeroed in on, visit the neighborhood and look out for issues like land quality, safety, conflicts, chances of weather or natural damage, convenience etc. These will help you choose the right plot for yourself.

How do I know what to do?

What you need from your house is completely up to your and your family’s choice. Sit with your friends and family and brainstorm out the things that are essential and optional for your new home. Make sure you have wiggle space for any additions or subtractions that might happen in the course. However, it is smart to consult a professional to help you gauge and assess the situation and thus, design your dream abode according to your need and budget.

What about the elbow grease?

If you are someone who is good with building, a substantial part of your expenses will be immediately slashed as a lot of the work, especially woodwork etc. can easily be done by someone who is comfortable with elbow grease. However, since a house is a major decision and it is on which your safety depends, do not DIY it unless you are one hundred percent sure about your skills. If not, talk to several contractors, pick their minds and don’t be afraid to take reviews before you finalize one.

Sourcing materials

Did you know that you can easily source the best materials, right from the top-quality wood to the most powerful electric chainsaws available and you would actually not have to pay though your nose for that? Simply do your research and buy or rent only the necessary materials and tools that you actually need, instead of paying over the top. This way you are in control of what goes into making your house and you get the most worth out of your money since you are not paying for any middlemen in this process.

Building your own house not only saves you substantial amount of money, it also helps you create a living space customized to your unique needs. The biggest reason why actively building a house is cheaper is because you are the one who takes all the headaches of figuring out the stuff and giving the orders but when it comes to the final bill, it is worth the work!

    While Q says there’s no need to prepare as grid will not go down, be in that comfort. BUT ….
    Always be prepared with a few days of food / water / supplies.
    My great grandparents went through the 1909 San Francisco Earthquake and it has been past down in our family for 100 years to always prepare for ANY disaster. You should have seen the side of my mothers house with 4 garbage cans lined up with her stuff. She cracked me up in her preparedness. Medicines to old sweaters to paper plates to spare cat food. Bless her heart.

  2. Edward, please
    My question about preparing for two weeks without food and water, gave the answer that that remains unchanged.
    Now Q sais this:
    Should we be prepping for some kind of shutdown?
    No. Reports of ‘power grid’ attacks (6 mo prep) should be disregarded.
    While attacks do occur, we are safeguarded by a ‘Black Eye’.

    What do we do?
