Welcome family, friends and fellow homebuilders! This blog is going to document the process of building our very first home. I hope to teach you the many benefits—and challenges—of building small, building green and building on a budget.

I would be lying if I said the process wasn’t discouraging—especially for a young couple building within our financial means. That is part of the reason I haven’t blogged about our experiences until now. I wasn’t lazy. I was just unenthusiastic.

But with the positive events that occurred over Labor Day weekend—we signed a contract with a builder and have a proposed end date in sight—I have a much improved outlook on our project. And a desire to help educate others who want to build green.

I welcome your questions, as I’ve undoubtedly shared the same concerns, and I can’t wait to pass on all we have learned to you. For those who feel a project such as this is too daunting—I’m here to give you hope that it’s not.

Believe in your home. Believe in yourself. And, along the way, follow us on our journey home!
