Environmentally Sound Construction
Not all houses are made of brick & tile; owner builders can and do build homes from other materials with better insulation properties.
Have you considered straw bale? It's surprisingly strong, very thermal efficient, and even has excellent sound dampening properties as well.
What about rammed earth? This has the advantage of high load bearing strength (up to three storeys) and superb insulation - we've heard reports that rammed earth homes maintain a constant inner temperature almost 365 days a year.
No room for a garden? Why not put the garden on your roof! What else were you going to use that space for :)
Your House Your Way
Being an owner builder, you have the unique opportunity to do something different, which suits you. Not everyone wants to build a 4x2 brick and tile house in the suburbs - there's nothing stopping you from being creative and coming up with something unique.
