Building a Physical Turtlebot Robot

I have been following several ROS tutorials over the last few weeks and I'm interested to try my hands on a Turtlebot robot that can navigate my home. I'm now searching for some blog posts or some articles that could point me on what hardware should I buy and how the individual hardware components (lidar, motor controller etc.,) fuse together to build the end robot. Could someone please point me to some documentation or some step-by-step tutorials where I could refer and do this practically?

Thanks for the replies, but that is not what I was looking for. Ideal would be a blog tutorial or something that describes the list of parts needed that I should source first and install the standard ROS packages to get it working. The Linorobot is indeed a good starting point, but I'm looking for something else! I also do not want to buy the Turtlebot robot per se.

If you are looking to build something similar to turtlebot, to understand how ROS works on the real robots (or) to build a ROS enabled robot. Here is a really cool resource you can read which can get you started or atleast give you some directions

linorobot-website and their GitHub rebpo
