Buying vs. building

In the spirit of my previous post, I'd like to address home buying vs. building a house. It is my dream to buy a piece of land and build a custom house; however it seems very laborious...

If you had a choice, which one would you choose and why?

Renting vs. owning

Is it cheaper to rent or to buy where you live? I lived in two different houses before I got married and since then, lived in four different apartments, so we've never been homeowners because it is too expensive, plus we moved towns each time. This apartment though is the nicest one so far!

I of course long for a house we could settle down in. Hopefully soon!

Actress Emma Thompson recently said that motherhood is a full time job, which of course upset some feminists.

Yahoo answers

A quick search with the word "housewife" or "homemaker" reveals a lot of negative answers on the site Yahoo answers. Some answers are positive though!

It's fascinating to see other people's opinions on the matter. It all comes down to money, not the fact that a woman's presence at home is priceless!

What I do

I may not hold a job right now, but I manage our household.

I've had a few part time jobs in the past, but I prefer to stay home now while hubby works full time. Paying for a second car for me to work wouldn't be worth it...

I pay the bills on time, I cook, clean, organize our apartment, take care of our cats and shop mostly for food. I always think of what else I can do to make our life run smoother!
