Get The Maine Land First, Then Build, Pay As You Go House.

Unless you like the idea of struggling with a twenty, thirty year or longer mortgage on your new home, buying just Maine land could be an option to seriously consider.

The secondary mortgage market hoops and hurdles to jump through, clear all add up when buying a Maine house.

No Maine house. Yet.

From the ground up. Outside walls in. Top to bottom. But in pay as you go, can fashion.

The Maine home buyer that is not flush with cash but can scrape enough together to buy the land.

Often Maine land that already has the well, septic system, power, driveway and even lawn established. Just missing the Maine home, house that has already been built in the buyer’s head. Carried around for too long.

And with home grown passionate builders that have a sense of humor. Can live with a table saw set up in the living room. So what if the insulation is Detail, Finish Work You Supply Photoshowing in the cathedral living room for a spell.

Or sub floors are the way we roll for awhile. Before the real deal gets layed down, locked in place. Just wear your slippers to avoid the splinters kids.

Where the money for the v match knotty pine finished walls, final floor covering has to wait. IThe llimited funds diverted to the duct work for the heating system.

A bigger priority that nags, calls out with the approach Maine winter weather. That drives the “build it yourself” Maine home owner inside.

For a reach in the job jar of home projects on the inside of the structure. But shifting to outside ones when the sunshines brighter, stronger, longer.

There is a time, a season for everything we are all taught as young grasshoppers.

Applied to the build from scratch Maine house on land project for your growing family to call home. With an eye on the weather channel to seek out windows of opportunity.

To decide are you working outside, staying inside tomorrow? Or later on today when the black, dark clouds open up. When a shift is necessary. Where no daylight is wasted, you are on your own clock. Where you are never idle for long. But like a marathon do take breaks to enjoy the surroundings of Maine, Vacationland.

The staging, tools, long extension power cords and materials inside the Maine home under construction.

That roam, get parked here and there. Eventually all around the interior of the structure, collection of rooms that slowly take shape. Turning a house to into a home in Maine. Built with pride, with the financial resources and Maine Simple Living, Mostly Outdoors, Natural Flower Photoskill set of the Maine land owner named on the deed.

Who does not want to buy an existing Maine home that needs to be undone, redone and overhauled.

That may still leave lots to be desired in the final analysis after all the expenditure.

And total satisfaction is missed, lost in the expensive process that someone else started differently than you would have.

Building a home in Maine on land as you can afford.

Determination needed. Piece meal construction, with two thirds of the job cost being labor. So you supply, bring your own like a pot luck supper, covered dish. Fashioned like the years ago lifestyle of  bartering, trading skills. Helping the Maine farmer down the road get his barn built this weekend thinking. With the favor exchanged on your patch of dirt at the end of the next week. Where your neighbors extend, exchange the same courtesy, favor in return. Tit for tat.

The move to Maine is for simple living. All the way around. From spending too much in the concreteBuilding A Home In Maine, But Enjoying The Surroundings Too Lake Photo jungle to watching your pennies. Not spending unless you have too and when you do with impulse control.

Gaining real value, quality or waiting. To keep looking or decide you did not need what you were after anyway.

Or found another option, route to take that is better.
