Does anyone know of a website or a service or some other method that will allow him to access that favorite site?

CuriousGeorge: Building a House My fiance and I would like to build a house, actually build it, not just hire someone else to do it. We understand we will need some help ocassionally, but we would like to minimize that. Neither of us are handy - but that's more from lack of effort than anything else. We are big believers in being able to do it if we can find the right books to help. We have been looking at some pre-package type deals like those at Menards. Any ideas on books, tutorials, help, recommendations or any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
