About

This is a blog about our cabin and how we built it. We built it ourselves and with the help of many many friends. We built it over 8 years of weekends and summer vacations and we built it using seven critieria for deciding what and how we were going to build.

The 7L’s are Local + Logical + Light / Low-Impact + Liveable/Loveable + Low-cost + Long Lasting + Lots o ‘uses.

Over 75 people helped build the cabin!

Many of the beams and posts for the cabin were milled on a chainsaw mill from trees which were given to us by a neighbour.
The cabin is off-grid and solar powered

 

Friends and family helped during several week long building bees and on weekends
