Shortly after we closed on our land purchase we began dreaming about what our future home might look like. We tried sketching out plans on paper and we tried some free online options but we usually just ended up frustrated and irritable after a short session of working on our new home design.
A major part of our move to a wholesteading lifestyle is our dream to move out of the suburbs and on to a hobby farm. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find a hobby farm that meets the needs of an 8 person family, that matches our architectural and design preferences, and that simultaneously fits within our budget. After an exhaustive search we decided our best option was to purchase land and design our own house.
Below is a summary of the steps involved in building our custom home from beginning to end…please leave a reply if you have any questions on the process:
