Went to Organic Feast for a Coffee on the weekend. As you do at Cafe’s you grab a magazine.

My wife found me a magazine named “The Owner Builder“. I loved it. So many real life experiences of people building low cost but very interesting structures.

By the end of the magazine I was ready to buy 30 acres back in the hills and build a mud/timber home using hessian and wire.

Sigh. I have always loved the ideal of self sufficiency but lack the gumption to ever make it a reality.

Besides, the further you move out of town, the less chance you have of getting a cheap yet fast internet connection.
