1. Custom Built on a Budget: New Home

1. Custom Built on a Budget: New Home

When the owner-builder came across a recently vacated lot in this neighborhood, he jumped at the chance to buy it. Using a straightforward design, salvaging materials where it made sense, and using his own labor, the owner kept to a tight budget, spending less than $80,000. The two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath cottage lives large with soaring ceilings in the great room, a custom spiral staircase, and a blend of corrugated metal and HardiPlank siding.
