The Owner Builder magazine was established in 1981 with the aim of serving the interests of the owner builder. The Owner Builder 222 June-August 2021 was a very special bumper issue, with 132 pages and a heavier cover, to celebrate the 40th anniversary.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to say it was the last issue.
The timeless information published over 40 years is not lost. All 222 back issues plus compilations are still available in digital format through the online shop.
