I am a Dutch open minded guy (46), former project manager for online software development, now on a long sabbatical to work on one of my lives dreams, to build a sustainable small house.
I am building a wooden house (5×6 meters) in a garden complex. It's build of second hand and free materials. The house itself is made from timber frame and finished with second hand materials. The house is almost finished, still there is work in finishing the electricity (solar system), plumbing and finalize the exterior.
If my building permit is approved by the local government, I will start building a small shed, based on the same features of the small house. Everything has te be done, so timber framing, roofing, insulation, exterior and interior.
Also there is a lot of garden work that can be picked up, like weeding and landscaping.
