Can Plutor make his own cell phone repeater?

Posting this as a proxy, as Plutor just asked a question yesterday:
"I moved into a new condo this weekend. Sadly, despite the full cell phone signal I get on the sidewalk just outside, I get nothing at all inside the building unless I stand very close to the windows. There's supposedly no lead paint in the building. My wife and my friends have the same problem. What can I do to remedy this situation? I don't want to spend the several hundred dollars on a cell phone repeater. Is there a cheap indoor-to-outdoor antenna I can use? Can I make my own repeater?"
