Does anyone have experience with the Enertia house kits?

Thanks in advance,

How about a house kit? A number of us are looking at a First Day
Cottage, which is energy efficient, designed to be built by amateurs,
and uses no plywood or OCB board. Everything is solid wood and they are
easy to heat.  Each Cottage is also designed for each builder based upon
the basic shell. You can find out more information on their website:

Another alternative would be using stock plans and there are a number of
places that sell them on the Internet.

You could also use a House design program for your computer, some of
which will also have preloaded, or access to, already existing plans.

BTW, if you do contact First Day, please tell them Stuart Joseph of Caer
Coburn told you about them.
