A home is not a mere transient shelter: its essence lies in the personalities of the people who live in it.’ – H.L. Mencken

Art studio on steeply sloped site. Lock-up to completion on a straw bale and mud brick home. Tiny houses have great potential. Running off a solar powered system. Successful downshifting. These are just some of the featured articles. 

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.

All hard copy subscriptions now include the digital PDF version as a special bonus. If you are a regular reader and enjoy the content provided, please consider taking out a subscription. Thank you.
