Here’s a time-lapse video that shows a family building a homestead over the course of three years.
What a good job!
What a lot of work.
It’s inspiring to see something like this.
And, like the builder says in the video, you sometimes don’t know what you’re capable of until you have to do it.
This family purchased property in an area where the bank wouldn’t finance the build.
They were too far away from the power lines for the bank to take a chance on financing, so everything they did was paid for out of pocket.
In the video, the homeowner says that other homes in the area cost 150 dollars per square foot….but their build cost around 16 dollars psf.
That’s a pretty dramatic savings.
It takes a lot of planning and hard work to save that much.
This is one of the better home building videos that I’ve seen lately….no hype…straight forward.
You can see more of the family and their project on their YouTube channel….
