Everybody knows that building a house is twice as much work, and takes half again as much money as you have budgeted. Not to mention time pressure and the stress on marriage. You would think Milt and Chris Ritter have already learned that lesson, having built a home once before. But NO!
The Green Blues follow Milt and Chris as they try to build a sustainable, hand-crafted house with their savings. Things go awry before the first nail is driven when they learn their concrete budget is woefully inadequate. Then they find out that their house is being built partially on their neighbor's property. It just keeps going badly for the couple until they run completely out of money and have to lay off all the workers and try to finish the house themselves.
This is a quirky tale full of twists, turns and mishaps...and maybe a lesson or two.
