In his book, Mortgage-Free!, author Rob Roy, focuses on one main strategy of living mortgage free. He advises readers how to accumulate enough savings to purchase land to build on. He then proposes constructing a temporary shelter near the site of the permanent home, becoming one's own contractor, using alternative building materials, and building small. Drawn from Roy's practical experience, the book offers a good deal of advice for those interested in taking this approach. With some wry humor, Roy also delves into the history of mortgages and how they work. :: Mortgage-Free!
