Referring to kbucilo's msg about a Rohn 20:  I had a 40' one, house 
bracketed at 20', for many years when I was younger -- my parents' 
house.  I put a cheap 20' mast on top and built 4-el monobanders for 20, 
15, and 10.  In a big windstorm the mast bent just above the tower but 
the tower was fine.  It was 20' above the house bracket unguyed.  Even 
though it was stronger than the mast, I would not call it a husky tower 
by any means.  It would have been much better if I had guyed it at the 
top; better yet, upgraded to Rohn 25 or 45 or something.  Nevertheless, 
it did survive and is still up in that site, with no antennas on it, to 
this day; my sister and her daughters have asked me not to remove it; 
they use it to climb up on the roof in lieu of a ladder.
