Well, I already know what kind of house I want to build, so property in an area I want to live in would be the second step. Yes I would like to build the house myself, clearly not by myself because that would take a long ass time, one person building a house, lol, but who knows, maybe I just might. (save for the excavating and foundation) How many people can look at their home with the satisfaction of knowing that they built it themselves and did a fine ass job, not many I reckon, but I want to be able to do that.
No, I'm not a carpenter, but one day I could be, a lot can happen in 5-10yrs. Besides, carpenter is just a title, you don't have to be a carpenter to know how to build something. My father is neither a plumber nor a carpenter and he turned his crappy unfinished basement into a rec room with walls, all his electrical (but he's an electrician) a fully working bathroom and a bar with stools etc, he did everything himself. One just needs to be a "handyman" to do said things. Granted a house is a much larger scale, nonetheless one does not need a title to do something. I use to build all the time in shop class in high school and in my uncle's wood shop in his basement. So some brush up classes wouldn't hurt because high school was like seven years ago, haha.
But anywho, I can do anything I put my mind to, and I want to build my own house one day. So I figure, now is the time to start preparing and getting ready so that I can actually manifest what is in my brain. And who knows, maybe I'll be fortunate enough to marry a carpenter or handyman and then we can build our own house together, haha.
Let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out
