Maybe Don't Try This At Home...ME? Build a 5-Room Concrete Block HOUSE?!

ME? I could build this 5-room concrete block house (complete for less than $3650) MYSELF??? Oh, man. I so very much doubt it. Popular Mechanics gets me every time...It's their clever use of exclamation points: "Beat the High Cost of Home Owning! No Experience Needed! Follow Book and Plans! Save Thousands of Dollars!" The Exclamation Points Make Me Feel Invincible! It's like the biggest bestest pep talk for someone who has trouble performing basic measurement tasks! They think I could actually Follow Book and Plans! (Note: This house is an excellent weapon in the war against termites...)
