Caution - Philosophy Ahead Prior to starting on the home building adventure let us look at some of the caveats that prospective homeowners should become aware of through a process of education by qualified and interested parties. Building a home is usually an undertaking between partners, and requires a substantial effort on their behalf. However this does not mean that the road traveled can not be highly productive and enjoyable.
