A compelling case for ‘upcycling’

The Owner Builder 203 October/November 2017 is on sale nationwide from 1 October 2017.

While we generally feature owner builder projects that start from the ground up, there is a compelling case for ‘upcycling’ an existing structure. In this issue, this concept is explored through the restoration of an historical building, the development of a relocatable ‘Ecomobile’ and the evolution of an ‘accidental house’ that arose from a storage container. Along with the regular assortment of inspirational projects and technical information, there is plenty to keep you entertained. See the website and Sample Issue Extract  for more details.

The extract article this issue is last in the series of updates from John and Dana about their straw bale build; they are finally in and loving it!
