We’re happy to announce our tenth anniversary this month. Very exciting. Time really flies. A lot has changed over the years, but Kelly and I continue promoting simple, affordable housing solutions using readily available local and natural building materials such as earth, stone, recycled wood, straw and rice hulls.
On the right hand side of the page you can find links to our other websites. Altogether, we have thousands of pages of free content on natural building, sustainable building and sustainable living (gardening, homesteading, off grid, etc.). Below I’ve listed the top 10 most popular stories of the year.
1. Counties with Few or No Building Codes
3. Earth-Sheltered / Underground House Plans
4. Top 10 Cottage Industry Products
5. Free Plans
6. 25 Small, Sustainable House Plans, by Owen Geiger
7. Free Heat for Your Home: Homemade Briquettes and Logs
8, A Sad Story of What Can Happen Without a Permit
9. Pallet Wood Kitchen Cabinets (We have lots of stories on how to use pallet wood for furniture, paneling, flooring, trim, etc. Speaking from many years of experience, trying to make cabinets with pallets would be very time consuming and challenging. I’d suggest using recycled wood or locally/sustainably harvested standing dead timber.)
10. Green/Eco Friendly Brick Options
