TOB 205 Feb/Mar 2018

Building a sustainable house

The Owner Builder 205 February/March 2018 is on sale nationwide from 1 February 2018.

Another bumper issue inspiration, from owner builders out there doing their thing! From timber to straw bale, earthen plaster to control joints, mud brick to cob, we have got it covered. See the website and Sample Issue Extract  for more details.

The extract article this issue follows the design process behind Miranda Corkin’s award winning straw bale home rising from the ground.

Hard copy back issues a thing of the past. The magazine will still be printed in hard copy each issue, and be available in that format through newsagents and to subscribers who are current at posting date. However, there will no longer be any hard copy versions of back issues available. All are still available as digital PDF versions – just remember to provide your email address when ordering.

P.S. Subscribers really are the backbone of continued production of the magazine.
If you are a regular reader and enjoy the content provided, please consider taking
out a subscription – for yourself or someone else. Thank you.
