The Most Famous Spec House in America is Having an Open House


Wish I could be there.

The second and final open house will be

Friday September 17th and Saturday September 18th, 2021.

We will be there from 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Address: 3044 Daysha, Roseburg, Oregon

You can park anywhere on the street, or on the lot next to the house.

We look forward to seeing you there! 

The Daysha House project began three years ago with Episode One with channel subscribers around 60,000:

The latest video update was this week with Episode 120 and by comparing the two you can see how much was learned not only about making houses but about making videos. Essential Craftsman now has over one million subscribers:

    When we had an open house on our Florida house more than 300 people came tromping through.
    300 strangers in our house!
    The street looked like a parking lot.
    I’ll never do that again.

    Well, what can I say but they are up for it. Remember that the point of a house built on “spec” is to sell it for more than it cost.

    Also, I don’t think Wadsworth and Wadsworth are going to do another, but what a great accomplishment this has been for both.

      Yes, sell for more than it costs. That’s a good thing.
      At this moment I am finishing up the plans on the 26th “spec” home I have designed this year. I did 13 more this year for custom buyers. For a total of 39. I imagine I will do 60 or more before the year is over. Been a busy year.

      Spec = speculative, or, speculation buyers. Spec could also mean specific. As in, A house built specifically to be sold quickly. Like the name “ranch style home” it can mean whatever the speaker wants it to mean. 2 of the 5 homes we have lived in over the past 38 years have been new builder spec homes. Of the other 3, 1 was a rental, 1 was previously owned, and 1 was custom built. My favorite was the custom, of course. It fit like a glove.

      Also, if they are successful with this one they should do another, but employ what they have learned through the past process. But then, I believe he is about my age (66) and may not want to commit to such an all consuming endeavor. It’s a young mans world.
