It would be nice to have a Home/Retreat Building section so their hard earned knowledge could be passed down to those members planning work for their own retreats. Building or...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Okay let´s put the politics aside for a second. How do you build a house? You know, a building in which you can live for some time? Nothing luxurious or fancy like modern houses, but not like a shack or a short term survival shelter either. I sit at my desk most of the time (except when I'm...
