Building a house from the ground up is no small feat, but people have been doing it for centuries. Unfortunately we in the western world have been swallowed by our own economic system and owner-built homes are less common. Although many families are transient and mobile, the reality is that we need to be grounded.....somewhere. We all crave a sense of place in this world. A home is a haven, a resting place, secure, warm and full of fond familiar experience. Home is where the heart lies. In a time of rising living costs we need to be able to create our own spaces without paying for the rest of our lives.
This is the story of establishing our own space with our own hands one step at a time without a mortgage.
Pull up a stump and watch the story unfold. We expect that it will be more than a few years in the telling. Check on the blog for updates on what the weekend warriors have been up to.
