Building your own home?
We can help you decide:
- site location and initial design considerations
- building systems (cob, cellulose, wood chip clay, load bearing, stick frame, etc)
- assess and source appropriate materials
- assess and source appropriate professionals (designers, builders, electricians)…
- teach you onsite how to do it – plumbing, building, plastering
- Stick handling policy and code
- assess appropriate technologies for water systems, heating, energy systems, and resource recovery
- provide resources, links, moral support and more…
Often consulting goes hand in hand with hands on teaching, whether it be cob, earthen plasters and floors, lime plaster, grey water, hydronics and heating, water filtration systems and more. When we get our hands dirty, we have different rates that apply.
