Standard and Alternative Design and Construction Methods

We have gathered as many resources to help you plan, design and build your dream home in the American Redoubt!

Each of the resources are located on their own page. We have provided basic information and a video along with links to specific companies. As always, we will feature firms that are located in the American Redoubt. If no such firm is located here, or the firms products are not quality, we will seek companies located outside the region for each specific genre of home design.

Purchasing your land is only the first part of the journey to self-sufficiency and walking through the door of your newly finished homestead. For most, the conceptual design process followed by the final design and building process will become life long memories to share with friends and family. it’s very hard work but well worth the effort!

We hope your journey is life changing! We ask that you share it with us along the way for others to learn. Please email musings with pictures and/or video to us at info@americanredoubt.com
