BUILDING a house is a big job.

With this in mind, Nimbin-based company Terraeden Biotecture has come up with a solution to make building a home easier – get as many people as possible to help.

The company’s unique attitude toward building sees participants physically build an “Earthship” home through community workshops.

Over the course of the build, participants learn practical skills and theory about things such as permaculture and law.

Terraeden design facilitator Duuvy Jester said he could come up with a design for any home based on a client’s budget.

“Not everyone can afford the labour costs, so the people who are coming to do the build get a reasonably priced education that gives them real skills and the people building the house get their labour cost cut out,” Mr Jester said. READ MORE »
