I am in the process of building my own home. Actually I'm still trying to acquire the land. From my experience, it seems there is lack of information or lack of a community where a foreigner's experience is documented and shared.
To bridge that gap I will be blogging about my experience at http://kichijojilife.blogspot.com so people get a sense of the overall process from finding land, getting a loan, negotiations, etc.
I know every situation is different, but I've found that advice I've gathered from friends who have built their own homes to be incredibly valuable. My goal is to share this in a public forum to the benefit of the foreign community in Japan.
Please have look and let me know if it's all useful by leaving comments on the site.
