Building

We live in a 500 square foot trailer and have no current goals of the large, elegant homes that set so many homesteaders back a decade or more on their plan of being independent on the land. When we build chicken coops or porches or small outbuildings, we use as many found materials as possible and keep it cheap. These posts are far from a primer on traditional building techniques, but they might help similar frugal homesteaders get by on less.
