I have custody of my son and daughter but live in one of the most expensive regions of the United States. For employment I have chosen a profession in public service which allows others to get on the right path, however, it does not pay enough to pave mine; so in return I can do that for my children. Currently there are issues with their living situation which concern me as a father. I just want to give my children a place to call home. Utilities are also very costly, and it would be an amazing feat to build something energy efficient to keep our bills as low as possible. I would actually prefer a very small home with enough land for a garden or outdoor resources as opposed to the opposite. Small homes bring families together, and I'd like to think more time outdoors will give us a healthier lifestyle.
I loved legos as a kid, I loved home design books as a teenager, and I still want to own a home that I built and didn't have to rehab.
