It was May 2016, My husband Jeffrey and I just bought one acre of land near Waco, Texas.
As soon as we bought the land, I immediately started designing my dream home. The dream home that would put us with a mortgage for the next 30 years. I had a portfolio of floor plans that I liked and took them to a local architect. He designed the home I had been dreaming of.
It was not 24 hours after we brought the house plans home that my husband showed me a metal building home his buddy at work built for $35,000.00. Then the conversation started….
I said to my husband “what if we built a home like that? We could be mortgage free if we went that route.” There was something so liberating to think of living a life without a mortgage. There was no turning back. We made the decision to build this style of house withing a 5 minute conversation. Back to the architect went.
We had plans drawn up for a 1500 sq for house with 7ft porches on both sides.
So why did we decide to build this style of house? To live a DEBT FREE lifestyle.
