Recode reader David, who lives in Virginia, wrote in to say that he was building a house in his backyard and realized he had no plans to build on land, which he then realized was wrong.
I got a bit excited when I realized this, and I actually thought about it and it turns out it would be possible, but it would take a lot of money and a lot more time to build than I thought it would.
So I thought, I’m going to try it, but the house would have to be on a big, flat piece of land, so I’d have to do a lot.
I think if I went to my friends house and I said, “Hey, I’ve got this big flat piece that I want to build in a backyard,” they’d say, “Oh, well, you know, I don’t want to do that.”
But you’ve got to be realistic.
You can’t build a house on the top of a hill.
You just can’t.
It would take you a lot longer to build a giant house on land than you can build on the surface.
So you just have to take it to the land, build it, and then you can move on to the next thing.
