I dont really think you are being serious, maybe you are having a joke, but if you are being serious: please don't do this.

Never make a mains lead with a plug at both ends - never ever. Just think about it for a moment and you will see what an incredibly dangerous thing that is to do.

Hint: If you want to power your house with a Generator, you need a thing called a transfer switch. Also from the sounds of it, you need the services of a professional electrician.
