Curious how it's done?
My friend shows us the site next door where his oldest daughter and her new husband are building their home. It will be a simple house, maybe about three hundred square feet.
Here, his daughter and son-in-law carry beams from the local sawmill to the building site. You buy what you can afford, build with what you have. Buy and build more later.
Construction is a friends & family type event.
This is the local lumber yard, about a quarter-mile from their site. The nearest sawmill is another mile down the road, I think.
To give you an idea of the timeline, this photo is from last October. Friends of ours walk past the site where the younger one will build a new home with her husband.
These folks are fairly well off by community standards. They have a water spigot (lower left in the photo) just a few meters from the porch.
The yellow vans are wrecked taxis they hope to repair and use to generate income. It's a difficult prospect at best as parts must come from Europe.
