I built a little home. My small house is unusual in that it is relatively affordable and efficient. This site shares what I've learned about home construction and building products.
I built a 584 square foot house (plus porches) on a quarter-acre lot. It's style is "Charleston Single House" -- two story, one room wide, narrow end toward the street and porches along the side. There is a living room, kitchen, bathroom, one bedroom, and porches upstairs and down. This small house is sized to fit one or two people.
