I am looking for a good book or website which shows latest developments in durable house construction (such as concrete, masonry or well braced wood construction) which can be executed by a non-professional (owner-built home) or can be executed by a pretty standard residential crew without special training and without significantly higher cost (obviously concrete and masonry is more costly than stud framing).
I recently acquired some land in Pennsylvania and I want to build a house which is pretty much storm-proof (maximum resistance to tornadoes or high winds as well as intrusion prevention and fire resistance.
Another area of help would be a pre-fab product line or system (such as prefab panel or bracing system) which is user-friendly and does not require large equipment or special skills.
ANY GOOD SOURCES OUT THERE?
