Build your own home for less than $15,000.

Build Your Own Home for Less Than $15,000, by Paul Bemish (Quill, New York, 1984; $8.95). For budget-conscious builders, the "home" in question is a 24-by 36-foot, two-bedroom dwelling, with living room, kitchen-dining area, and one bathroom. The 126-page text tells you what tools and materials you'll need and how to proceed through the project. Drawings show framing details and layouts for heating, plumbing, and electrical systems.

You'll also find plans for adding a master bedroom and bath ($4,000), a two-car garage ($2,500), and 24- by 36-foot full basement ($4,000). Costs are based on materials in Southern California; prices will vary around the West.
