While the real estate market is not exactly booming in many parts of the world, now is an ideal time to "strike while the iron is hot" - it's a great time to buy a home, and it is an ideal time to plan that dream green home you've wanted to build.

Why plan if I can't afford to build right away, you ask? That's a great question. The answer lies in understanding that they ideal time to plan is when you have plenty of time to think about your options. Whether your future build may be 1 year away or even ten years in the distance, planning now is a huge time and money saver.

What kind of home do you really want? Size? Features? Flooring? Roofing? "Green", non-toxic finishes? How can you save money while planning ahead for this home?

Low Cost House Building is entirely possible - but only if you know the secrets to slashing your building costs. You owe it to yourself to read all about the process here.
