The point is that most people don't believe themselves capable of building a house and that it's simply too difficult to do. This is not true. Virtually anyone can build a house. Read, study, and don't be afraid to ask questions or make mistakes. Before you know it you'll be living in a house you built.

That is a normal thing to do here in Scandinavia at least, so not strange or amazing in anyway.

they had a chance to build a cool, unique, unusual, or proactive home in any of 100 different ways, but decided to go cookie-cutter and traditional. why is that deserving of a thread??
