“Dreams do not come Cheap”

Had this very strong desire and dream to build a small abode in the Hills. When I started with this idea about ten years back my wife, kid and everyone else would just laugh it away not realizing my inner craving to own a small dwelling for myself. Like any common man I would just think about it and talk and express my desire whenever I got an opportunity. Well…everyone said Mungeri Lal ke Haseen sapne. Today when I am so close to complete my dream house I only have one thought “Dreams do come true but they do not come cheap”.
Yes after about a year of making up my mind and hardwork I am on the verge of completion (structurally as I write this) of my house in uttrakhand. Since I did pick up a couple of ideas from India Mike I wanted to start this thread to share with the community about my experiences and learning over the past one year when I started my dream project. I will keep posting my experiences stage wise and also my learning's from that stage so that enthusiasts like me do not get demoralized while pursuing their dreams.

Congratulations!
There is probably no one who does not rear a dream...but everyone does not make it into a reality...
Salute to you sir.

Eagerly waiting...
Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.

I too have been involved in this kind of project and my main aim was to stay away from any township, but in its vicinity and I have started the project with few of my friends in Timila village, about 11 Kms. from Ranikhet & 3 Kms. from Tarikhet (about 85 Kms from Kathgodam - the train head) - here is a small link about the destination - http://ghummakar-biswas.blogspot.in/...et-timila.html

I'm so glad and happy to find so many enthusiasts who share this peculiar dream. I'm also exploring to create a sustainable home for myself in uttarakhand..I am looking for places where nature has not been exploited yet. Had a word with some property dealers also. After going through many posts and my exposure; It is imperative for me to go there on ground and check. I will also share my experiences along with my fellow aspirants.

This is an extremely useful thread - many of us dream of this but unfortunately don't take the first step. CONGRATULATIONS - for not just taking the first step but coming close to realizing one. Pls do share the details.

Amit.
