Unless your building something huge its a wast of time.  Easier to prefab it 
in major parts, and launch and dock the parts.  Far easier.

If you want something office building sized you could inflate a structure 
that size, or larger and asemble it in it.  Harder though.

You want to go into space.  That take resources.  You won't get them (past 
hobbiestlevels) unless you can convice folks you can pay them back - probably 
with a good amount of interest.  If you can't pay your way, or interest 
enough contrabutions for fun or advertizing, you can't convince folks your 
worth the effort.
