I want to buy some land and build a homestead that I can pass on to my children and my children's children. A stick built home doesn't seem like it would last. What are workable alternatives?

>What are workable alternatives?
How much money you got? The reason stick framing is used in the USA is that it is the cheapest method available to us. If you do it right and use the right materials it can last as long as any wooden structure. You have to have good sheathing materials, exterior materials, insulation, etc, to protect the frame. Most of the time builders go cheap on everything. Any kind of wood will rot if the weather gets at it without protection and covering everything with shit-tier plastic and OSB is a recipe for disaster.

So, again, what is the budget? Building "right" can turn a $40k structure into a $400k structure without much effort or increase in size/comfort, etc.. There are levels of "right", though. A budget lets us know what level you can afford.
>>
>>1531517

they have open borders
>>
>>1531519
Probably around $150,000
>>
>>1531512
Before I give any advice on this, I have a few questions:
>What are your priorities, from highest to lowest? Space, construction cost, style, etc.
>Just how many people do you intend to house? You should probably be more specific than "a few generations worth"
>How many people do you intend to put in each bedroom?
>Do you plan in having rooms such as workshops, garages, home theaters, etc?
>What is your situation regarding utilities?
>>
>>1531524
My thought is to build a main house for myself and my family. As the children grow into their teenage years, I would build a guesthouse that would be independent. When my sons mature and get married, I would help them build their own homes on my land if they choose.

The priority is keeping costs low, as I want to be in as little debt as possible. Style and living space are low priorities. Children will not have separate bedrooms until they're older as I alluded to earlier.

I think I would want to have a basement, so that there is easy access to utilities, as well as space for a workshop.

I would want to have access to modern utilities, so I think having a water well, solar/wind power, and septic would be important.
>>
>>1531534
>around $150,000
Well, depending on where you want to build this you've blown your budget wide open. Where I live $150k won't even buy you more than a few acres of land, let along dig out a basement, septic tank, leach lines, and a well. That's before you get to the actual house mind you.

Maybe if you want to live in some bumfuck nowhere area in a flyover state, where you will be hard pressed to find a job paying enough to qualify for a loan of that amount, you could get half of want you want for $150k. How much does a decent plot of land cost where you want to build?
>>
>>1531559
I found forty acres for $20,000. And I am fairly confident that I could get a job working for the county.
>>
>>1531561
$500 an acre, so, a flyover state. Okay, that changes the dynamic.

Depending on the soil a well costs between $15 and about $40 a foot. If the soil is super shitty it can go up. Six grand for a well is about average in many places.

Septic and basement excavations can vary widely. Soil conditions, access to the site, local availability, frost levels, all can change the price a lot.

Now, the cheapest thing you can add to a house is square footage. On the low end most places I see cost about $100 a square foot. That is shit tier building style though. You want a home that will last so expect to pay more. Again, the cost per square foot goes *down* the more you add. So, a 1,000 square foot house might cost $200 a square foot but a 2,000 square foot house built the same why might only cost $150 a square foot.

You might think you can do all the work yourself and save money. Well, you can, to an extent. Framing is dirt simple. Alcoholic, meth addicted, high school dropouts can do it. Pouring a concrete foundation is another matter. Sometimes the cost of even renting the tools and doing it yourself exceeds the cost of having someone do it for you.
>>
>>1531571
I definitely intend to do some of the work myself, but for the critical things -- particularly the foundation -- I would have a contractor do the work.

My hope is to learn during the construction, and therefore be able to fix my own home in the future instead of hiring help.
>>
>>1531512
your kids will move out, and once you die immediately sell it
>>
>>1531582
Thanks anon.
>>
>>1531512
Poured concrete walls, or cinderblock will give the structure permanence.
>>
>>1531587
youre welcome :)

assholery aside, it is a possibility. People sometimes forget that their children are their own persons and they will not automatically have your values, despite your best efforts.

anyways, there's nothing wrong with stickbuilding. You could also do timber framing, the way homes used to be built. I think there's a place in Maine that teaches timber framing if you wanna learn yourself, but good luck finding a contractor that does it unless you're loaded. The biggest reason a home wouldn't last (besides lack of upkeep) would be structural issues like a shit foundation. If a homes got good bones, weather proofed right, and someone's around to work on it, it'll last. You can also get a jump on construction learning by volunteering for habitat for humanity. Anyone can do it, just latch on to whoever seems like they know what their doing.
>>
>>1531614
It's good to get a dose of reality now and then.

And I appreciate your suggestions. I've never heard of timber framing, but I'll look into it.
>>
>>1531534
>I would help them build their own homes on my land if they choose.
This is a common mistake that kills the "family home" meme. People buy a big chunk of land, ,kids spread out and build separate places, sibling rivalry and family spats, fences go up, life throws one or two curveballs to finish the job. Before you know it, this legacy you built is split up, and strangers own/rent most of it

I have seen this happen to at least a dozen family farms and estates
>>
>>1531696
I'm not sure I would have it be separate parcels of land for my sons, more of a village with all the houses clustered together.

Preferably not. Nowhere vermin can access, and nowhere water can pool if (when) the foundation cracks and you get a vicious rainstorm.
t. known several ppl including myself who've gotten wet basements even in a semi-arid region, who've had to deal with digging up and replacing weeping tile, hydraulic patches on the concrete, run sump pumps, and all sorts of bullshit that just wouldn't happen without a basement.

I live in Serbia and my house was built in 1932 by my grandgrandfather with mud bricks and it still stands today and it's comfy
By western standards these houses are horrible, the floors are fucked up and difficult to clean, the walls and ceilings are all crooked because they are basically mud smeared over mud and then painted with lime
A house like this you can make completely by yourself. The foundation is like a dry stone wall and you can dig in making a basement (but be sure to make a water drain or you'll be swimming in it) the mud bricks are dirt cheap and for the roof and the rest of the woodwork you can source local hardwood. You'd have to buy roof tiles or other materials and bricks for the chimneys
It'd take a lot of time but it's economical

And don't split your land when you die, give all the land to one son and help the others in other ways or you can say goodbye to your dream

I'm having a problem because my neighbors have been dumping dirt and pouring concrete around my house and now the foudation is lower than the outer level which brings watear inside the house. A tall foundation is of the greatest importance when building a house, if I were to build it again I'd make it 1meter tall

Depending on where you're located, I would most likely recommend timber framing. It looks good, you have many options available and it's the most shock-resistant form of construction that we have.

you just gotta raise them right so they don't run off to some degenerate shithole city to "be independent." if i ever have a family i'm doing what your'e doing, getting a big piece of land and building my own house and then having my sons houses be on the property as well. it would be a big ass house and i'd have like 10+kids and my wife would homeschool them and not have to work. no TV's, maybe internet tho, but not for the kids until their older. i'd raise them hardcore catholic and we'd pray as a family all the time and i would never fight with their mother in front of them and i would express my love for her in front of them often.
i know i'm not really one to be giving out advice on how to raise kids, but my family is very fucked up and i can what tell the the shit that fucked me up was. to things i can say for certain are you need to be affectionate with your wife in front of the kids and you HAVE to eat dinner as a family every night. this one is huge.

the reality is that i will probably end up either old and alone, or will die via some kind of uprising by the time i hit 30 and realize i can't take this shit anymore. pic related is what the house would look like, i love houses like this
>>
>>1531512
Unless you homeschool, and do it effectively it'll never last. One or two generations tops and your kids are gonna be "fuck this dirty old farm" and sell it for a nice car or whatever.
>>
>>1531512
On solid ground brick is obviously the material to beat. If not then the foundation is the limiting factor any way. If concrete rot is going to eat the foundation eventually, might as well build the rest from concrete too.

Wood actually has an advantage if you can't count on the foundation for a century, if you catch subsidence you can jack it straight without too much damage. Continuous maintenance in general is what it takes to make wood last.
>>
>>1533147
>if i ever have a family i'm doing what your'e doing, getting a big piece of land and building my own house and then having my sons houses be on the property as well.

Any man worth his salt won't live under the kindnesses of his father once grown. Best case, one child gets to carry the homestead on, but expecting all of them to do it is absurd.
>>
OP the purpose of a homestead in current year is supposed to be independence from (((the grid))). If you don’t think you need electricity, more power to ya, but you need to be able to raise enough meat and vegetables to feed a family. Your farm should be a proper business that sells its excess produce or animals to give it the best chance of survival. The final based and redpilled level of homesteading is being genetically independent from outside the homestead. I’m talking about never having to buy seeds or fresh breeding animals again. The latter is fucking difficult with large animals like cattle, but not so much with things like chickens and rabbits. It’s not impossible to have a herd of genetically viable cattle independent from the rest of the world, it would just be very difficult compared to smaller animals that also breed more readily. It would have to be a large and diverse enough herd to be able to pick a new breeding bull out of the new calves and castrate the rest.

You obviously don’t have to go that far, but the whole point of homesteading comes down to independence, no?
>>
What if your kids just don't reproduce because it's useless ?

Then the kids will die in it and the gov will sell the estate to an immigrant who has reproduced.

They might turn out to be special gendered and incapable of continuing the family line. Or gay, infertile or just not interested in the hassle and cost of becoming a parent. No point assuming that they'll make the choices you did, even getting a free house out of it isn't going to make them stick around if they were born with itchy feet. It's a nice idea and I wish you well but the way the world has changed, a mere dozen years after having my son, I wouldn't bring another child into it. If it turns around I can always find another fine young thing to have more kids in a couple decades. Male fertility is a wonderful thing.

This is pretty redpilled.

I have a friend who's doing something similar. Bought 30 acres in the sticks and built a house, homeschools his kids, devout Christian, not sending his daughters to college, raised his kids around animals, so they've become attached to farm animals like goats and ducks. Each of his kids could take a chicken from the yard to the table single handedly at 11yo. He's also managed to socialize them very outstandingly somehow.

He's training his eldest son to take over the family business, and he's going to help build houses for each of his kids when they grow up.

This is what happened to my dads side of the family. Great granddad bought an acreage west of Flint Michigan in the 1950s. Car plants were going to have jobs forever. Make the 'Murican dream come true. One big happy family. Arguments, nosy, bossy, and controlling siblings, rivalries, turned it into a nightmare.
Generations of the 60s and 70s said "fuck this silly shit, we outta here". Abandon Grandpas dream. Car industry collapses, no jobs, no nothing. Only people left living there are aging family members in their 70s and 80s.Still hate each other, but can't sell property because no one wants to live in abandoned industrial shithole, no matter how nice it is. Boomers, zoomers, genX, millennial generations scattered all over USA. Educated, successful, have their own lives. Consider great grandpas dream to be quaint, and old fashioned, but glad they aren't part of some strange conservative, control freak, cult clan in the back water rust belt.
Remember, your dreams aren't gonna be the same as your kids.

The issue is that all the white yuppies and liberals want to live in "cool" and "edgy" areas and gentrify it. The non-whites then get forced out because no money and have to move to regular middle class neighborhoods. The whites then feel that their neighborhood is shitty and move to the now gentrified neighborhoods. The yuppies and liberals see that their neighbors are white and fuck that milktoast bullshit.

It's cute that you think there will ever be a law allowing white only communities. The only way for that is to become rich enough to live in a community that black people couldn't dream of affording. I mean sure, you might get Will Smith next door but that nigger is whiter than me. The other option is just moving to rural Montana or Kansas. Those hicks have never seen a nigger outside of the picture box.

I just payed 135k for a 1600 sqft 3br 2ba farmhouse in the middle fucking nowhere, and I was lucky.
A friend of my grandma passed away, grandma told me his house was going up for sale. I got there literally 2 days after he passed, it wasn't even on the market yet, and someone had bought it outright for 95k, cash. Overpayed by ~25k.

The housing market is absolutely fucked right now, at least in the midwest. Around where I am, prices have gone up ~20% in the last 8 months. A lot of millennials straight up cannot afford a house, and won't be able to until after the upcoming economic crash.

most christians are just moralistic therapeutic deists these days. all protestants are heretics and their whole entire perception of christianity is founded on hypocrisy. with catholics, the problem is that we've let the protestants fuck up our worldview, they've tainted our perception of christ with theirs, they're dragging us down to hell with them. i mean, they run the fucking culture, this is bound to happen. and of course there is the jewish influence on society as well, which the protestants fully support.

tldr; we should've burned every single protestant at the stake when we had the chance

I blame large churches for a lot of it. I'm not religious, but I still think religion has its place in society, at least for a while yet.
Nondenominational churches with large congregations are the Walmart of spirituality. All they offer is complacency. I mean, have some fuckin pride in your particular sect, folks.
Just look at the dudes who head those places. They all look and act like a beige cardigan given sentience.

I think Christians, Muslims and Jews are 3 faces of the same coin. Be a Zoroastrian, that's the "pagan" base of most modern religion. Or be a Buddhist, they don't feel the need to conquer or convert their neighbours and perceived inferiors, though it doesn't guarantee you'll be any nicer. Religion rarely changes people for the better.

>>1536262
You worship a jewish deity who demands you eat his flesh and blood and that you love him above your family. You must grovel and die and nothing more for his "blessing". To your god, all humans are equally chattel.
Except before he sent his son to be mutilated, he viewed all non-jews as soulless animals who exist for the sole purpose to be used by his chosen race.
All Christians are fundamentally broken. You moral foundation is so weak and detestable. It's no wonder most devout Christians are zionists who adopt niglets. The only thing Christians seem to get right is hating homos, but that is literally it.

You wonder why your children leave you and don't give a shit about the home you built, here's why. They don't have a respect for anything because you yourself don't actually have a respect for anything. Why would they stay if groveling in heaven is all that matters? Why would they work if all that is required of them is to "believe", why would they care about their own family when you are no different than any other human on the planet? Why would they stay with you when the easiest path to redemption is by converting and supporting third world scum?

You don't need to adhere to any specific religion, just venerate your ancestors and respect nature and the natural laws of the universe, which can include some sort of deity or higher intelligence.
Or just go full pagang and modify your worship rituals to fit your own spirituality.
My great grandmother taught us about earth gods/goddesses and other creatures beyond our perception. I mean in the old-world style way, not faggot hippie shit.
Humans have to believe in something greater than themselves to emulate. Modern religions are shit at giving you an ideal, since most simply require blind faith and worship and nothing about accountability, advancement or self-actualization.

Christianity in the west isn't Christianity. Prots at best are nestorian shitheads. At worst, somewhere between gnostics and literal demon worshippers. Pre-vatican 2 (and vatican 1, imo) Catholics are alright for the most part. I disagree with their theology, but they're at least consistent about it.

You've got it backwards. Blacks metastasize outwards from the ghettos driving down property values. Whites move away. Jews come in, buy for rock bottom prices and push the blacks out. Then they flip it, gentrify the area and sell it back to whites for double the price

Denouncing empathy seems to be your strong suit, given how you've already condemned so many "Christians" that barely differ from you in the first place to death in your head. You know shockingly little about Christ. You don't think you're Jewish as well? Then what's with the Tanakh as 1/2 of your holy book? What's with the Vatican™'s relationship with Jews? Why are you so hostile and criticizing of other religions, while you believe in something so nonsensical as transubstantiation? What's with your blind acceptance of the words of (((Saul of Tarsus))), do you even read your own holy book? And above all, what's with your inexcusably Jewish prostration to the demiurge, a god who offers salvation in exchange for your subservience?

I'm late to the thread but my suggestion would be to look for land with timber and a good water source. White pine, fir, etc. You can then buy a used or new bandsaw mill and cut all your own wood to timber frame your house. It is labor intensive but much lower cost for a high quality end product. A bandsaw mill can also be used to build sheds/barns for livestock. Designing a grey water system and using a composting toilet can eliminate some cost in regards to septic. Heat with a wood stove. Depending on climate you will need to invest in insulation.

You could also look into straw bale built homes if lumber is not an option.

This.
Growing up, how many hundreds of times did you want to do something, only for it to be impossible because your family lacked the capacity for it? It's hard to be creative (in a way that is appealing to boys) when your family lacks: garage, lathe, mill, chisels, a backyard larger than your house, greenhouse, electronic components, etc . Kids ask for a lot of dumb shit, no parent who raises a child properly gives them even half of what they ask for (at least not until they are older and their requests become more reasonable and have less of an impact on their personalities). No one buys a lathe for their kid.


When the questions of food, housing, and future are already settled, suddenly "I want a lathe, but it would be irresponsible to get a lathe" becomes "I want a lathe, I am going to get a lathe". Bing-bang-boom, now the family has access to a lathe.

Dude, a shitty, no-frills salt box starts at $200,000. If there was any time to take out a loan for personal finance, it's home ownership. You're delusional.
>>
>>1540808
Sounds a little gay desu senpai
>>
>>1540812
To add to this, we did a home this year knowing the local market being a bunch of cheap hicks, and did a slam-out, stripped-down version of our most popular basic house, and it came in at $213,000 after lot. This is just material and labor, at contractor prices and not retail. To reiterate, you're delusional. At some point, even taking away everything you can to make it cheaper, a toilet still costs as much as a toilet. You're that annoying customer that comes to open house and wants to buy a $400k home with $100k asking price, and thinks I'm some kind of used car salesman who thinks he has a rube. Actually, that's exactly you, because what you're asking for would start at $400k without the damn dream world guesthouse.
>>
>>1540909
I guess prices don't change based on region? Good to know.
>>
>>1540963
They do, but not that much. You're maybe looking at 25% deviation, and I'm in a kind of hick area. Not rural, but not metropolitan by any sense. If anything, those would cost more because of scarcity or living cost, respectively. But what I mean is that a water heater costs as much as a water heater, a well costs as much as a well, and a sink costs as much as a sink. It's not like you can just magic-up a cheap house, and I'm talking from being the general contractor and not the buyer, so it's virtually /diy/ prices plus labor.
>>
>>1540967
What's the likelihood of doing a fair chunk of the work myself? Hiring a contractor to do some of the critical tasks like the foundation, and then working with the subcontractors to reduce some of the labor.
>>
>>1540968
I guess that all depends on what your skillset and timeframe are to answer that question. I mean, even something like finish electrical (putting the boxes on and hanging the fixtures) an electrician crew could slam out in a day and a homeowner could doddle on for a month.
>>
>>1540978
Time isn't a huge factor, but I want to build it right and well. I guess it'll depend on finding contractors in the area.
>>
>>1540987
Honestly, you should shop home builders in the area and get a loan. It's much less of a headache, but if you want to subcontract everything while paying the taxes and interest, or are fine with the project stalling out halfway through because you don't have the funds, then more power to you. Because you don't have the capital for more than a small cabin, and don't have the connections to do it on the cheap, and that's all I'm seeing right here.
>>
>>1540992
I'm a surveyor, so I'm not without connections in that area of endeavour. I'm also not married to one course of action or another, so I'll look into a loan.
>>
>>1540995
Well guess you got the connections covered, although in this seller's market there are a lot of cowboys out there in stark contrast to the post 2008 drip. But I just want to reiterate that for the bare basics, $200k would be on the very lowest end. Get an actual plan on the table, as in blueprints, because you can't get purchase orders let alone bids without even knowing what you're building. I highly recommend loan shopping, and paying it smartly instead of being thick-headed. This isn't a car, this is real estate.

That was the most basic-bitch home we've ever made, and still was $213k. Without a septic system or well either, and from what I gather you're rural, so add at least 40k to that.
>>
>>1541049
To some people "basic bitch" implies different standards.
>>
>>1541059
To some people, they don't know what in God's name they're talking about. Lots of carpet instead of hard surfaces, no custom painting, no drywall flourishes like basic layers, curtains, or differing corner beads, no space heaters, laminate countertops, no finished basement, nothing. Like I said, at some point a stud costs as much as a stud, and a piece of sheetrock costs as much as a piece of sheetrock. Don't hate the playa.

Which is why it happens. Certain """forces""" cause the white communities to have to take in non-whites, thus initiating the cycle, and basically causing financial efficiency, as the old houses are sold at less than market, or even at a loss, so people can escape the ghetto. It's a wonderful, perfectly legal scheme if you are in cahoots with the government to drop ni-....um, "disadvantaged peoples" into "privileged" areas. Such a predictable and profitable source of income.

A little different than someone who just wants revisions or everything just so, because these chucklefucks are quite literally wasting both of yours and their time. We can give you a home for probably less than if you subcontracted it yourself, just for having business connections and returning customer prices.
