Inexpensive Home Building

Cut through the jargon and nonsense of home building and house construction by starting from zero dollars and trying to figure best-value bang-for-your-buck when choosing construction methods or construction materials. My research might answer some of your questions and at other times perhaps you have the knowledge or experience to post the answers to my questions and thereby help others too. The goal is an affordable and sustainable home for all.

84 Square Foot (84sqft) Home on Wheels

The adult on the porch shows the scale better than the foreground children do.

This site (IHB) often has mentioned simple homes, tiny houses, micro houses, or little houses. A recent story of a woman, 44-year-old hazardous-waste inspector Dee Williams, who scrap-built an 84 square-foot (84sqft) cabin on a trailer frame, made it onto the home page. Her viral story seems to capture people's imaginations, so see my previous articles on the subject:

$28.12 1/2?
Can I finance that?
The homes in Mill Valley could use some DIY attitude as well.
