Sweat equity: building your own home
A number of Native DIY-ers are taking on what is traditionally the largest expense of their lives: their own home.

By putting the work in, homeowners are reducing their mortgages – or eliminating it altogether. One initiative also has home owner/builders share their experience with others just getting started.

Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce speaks with those who are sweating it out.
