I have a small family and we are renting an apartment at the moment but we are planning to have our very own house in the future. I always believe that building our own house will cost much cheaper than actually buying a house, it's just that building your own would takes time and also have to spend quite a lot of money for contractors. My husband is an architect so we would not have any problem about plan and design. What do you guys think? Even if we would have to pay contractors to build The House, would it still costs cheaper than purchasing a house from somebody else? By the way we have our own little land which will deducts the extra cost of building.
