We have had our ups and downs with the building plans. We have had a heck of a time finding someone to even talk to us about doing the plans for this type of home. Once we do they all start out with “the plans shouldn’t be that expensive” and them come back with “it’s gonna cost several thousand dollars”. I don’t know what their idea of “not expensive” is, but several thousand dollars is a lot of money to us. Then we had one guy tell us that the house we are wanting to build us going to cost us at least $200,000 and there is no way we can do it without a bank loan. I agree that it’s probably going to end up costing us more than anticipated, but $200,000 is a crazy number, especially out here, and considering almost the entire thing will be made of recycled materials.
So it was back to the drawing board. Then we received a call from an architecture student at the university. He had heard about our project and was really interested in working with us as part of completing his degree. We are so excited about this! Hopefully it will work out. We would like to start building soon.
