Framing seems straight forward but the problem is knowledge in securing to the foundation, roof and trusses. If I started with the 20x30 cottage, do the plans have all instructions for that? I would hire a local carpenter to help guide me through certain steps like that but was hoping some of this is laid out in the plans so I am not totally at the mercy of whom I hire.
A long time ago John discussed a pole barn home idea he had for a builder that wanted to build as cash allowed.Gravel base, pole construction with a roof for dry storage of materials, dry in and "camp" indoors while building, finish out as cash allowed.John said he was working on the plans, but I haven't seen them here ... I'm sure he busy enough as it is, but it sounded like a great concept for what you have in mind, and for many who have limited funds, or can't get a construction loan for their project (many banks balk at lending for homes less than 1400 sq.ft.).JD
