My son is off to college next year, so my wife and I are considering selling the old homestead in Seattle and moving into a new home. Our current home was built in the 1920s and has been a great place to raise our son, but I am ready to downsize. One idea we have is to have a house built, and attempt to have the house built from the foundation to the roof with nothing but American made components.
I have done a couple of posts on All-American homes before, but last week I discovered a great blog by a fella in Florida who is currently doing what my wife and I aspire to do. The house is in the home stretch of construction; it has been under construction since about March of last year. If you are interested in building an American made house, you should really spend some time reading all the posts, checking the vendor list and perhaps contacting Greg and Jen, the Florida couple having the house built. Anybody with the good sense to build a house with a view like this is worth talking to I can tell ya!
If you are considering building a new house, would you consider building an All-American house like Greg and Jen? Please leave a comment giving me your thoughts.
All the best,
