A Little about Me

A Canadian/American expat duo currently teaching and living in Asia, we spend our time travelling, re-purposing (anything and everything), gardening and just generally getting creative and thrifty with whatever we can get our hands on. Our lifestyle is rooted in an urban environment for the time being, but we're homestead oriented even here...we hope to transition to a complete homesteading lifestyle upon our return to North America. This future homesteading will hopefully include sustainable building techniques.

Why I Build Sustainably

While we live fairly sustainably for our urban environment, sustainable building is something we have very little experience with currently...we're always looking for ways to learn new things.
