‘If you are asked to build a castle, don’t build it out of sand by the ocean,
don’t build it out of ice in the middle of summer. Build it with the best materials,
with the best design, and with the intention to make it last the passing of time.
That castle ought to be your legacy.’
Real stories about real owner builders
Owner builders are building a legacy. Their projects are rarely short term, profit driven efforts; usually they are ‘in it for the long haul’. The latest issue includes three articles that could be classed as ‘legacy’ projects, with the owner builders sharing the building of their homes over 20 years ago, in which they still live. On sale nationwide from 1 December 2020.
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.
The Owner Builder is an independent magazine, published and printed in Australia for nearly 40 years. I’d love to keep this print tradition going. If you are a regular reader and enjoy the content provided, please consider taking out a subscription. Thank you.
