First, thanks! To all of you who took the time to email me directly via this site, The response to the first Stuff article has been great.
There are plenty of you who have built before or are in the dreaming stage. If you missed it, you can catch up here, and this week's piece is up now. If you have images of inspirational builds or technologies you think other #newbuildlovers will enjoy seeing, do post them up on Facebook. And I'm very chuffed that so many of you have been emailing me direct. As this process goes on I might get behind in replying to you all, but I'll do my best.
In the mean time, given that we're in planting season, I thought I'd share this great idea for building the world that will support any home. Gardens. Especially vege gardens! Did you know if you plant out seeds in egg cartons you can just pop them into your garden beds when they've sprouted? The cardboard will break down and you don't damage the fragile roots of your little seedlings. Genius.
Things are starting to heat up at Building Boxes and pretty soon I'll be introducing you to some of the people and products we'll be using in our build. But until then, thanks for stopping by and happy planting!
