As I have talked about before, I would like to have a bigger house. Nothing huge or course. Just a house with a basement and an open kitchen, dining and living area. Are our finances in that good of shape right now? No. We aren't behind on any of our bills but we can't afford to take on a much bigger mortgage. We want to build our next house so we can cut some costs. Brian knows how to finish a house, this could lead to a lot of savings. I guess it pays to marry a "Handy Man." :)
We have the floor plan that we want already picked out. It's beautiful, the house is by no means fancy. But, it has everything we want in a house. We have even went and look at the same house, it's actually a model home in the town Brian works in.
So on to my dream..... I want to be able to find alittle land not a lot like 6 acres max, build a garage or shed type structure to live in while we save up money to build the house. Now you might ask why is this a dream and not a reality? Well, because we can not find any land for sale and if there is land for sale it is outragous. So right now I will keep praying and dreaming that some time in the near future we will be able to purchase some land.
How did you try to cut cost on buying or building you house? I would love to hear your story.
