Yes, you can. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't.
It's a matter of getting started. Taking it one step at at time.
And never quitting. You might want, or need to ask for help during the process, but the more you contribute in the design and construction of your home, the lower the cost, and the more tailored that house will be towards it being your true home.
