Probably the only way to build mortgage free.
Can be easily done on your own.
What I do.
I present a weekend Log Home Building Course, which, in just 2 days teaches you all the methods and techniques required to build your own, environmentally sustainable, mortgage free genuine log home or cabin.
You do not need to be particularly practical and no previous construction experience is necessary.
by Roy Trembath in his well known hand built personal log home in
Heights, Garden Route, South Africa (pictured on this website).
The South African Log Home Builders Association has been established with the express purpose of teaching people to build their own personal solid log homes with their own cash.
Even if you do not intend to construct your own home, this course will teach you what to look out for if someone else builds for you.
The course takes only takes 2 days (Saturday and Sunday).
Dates for the courses are announced about 2 months prior to them taking place.
The course is structured to be easily understood by people of all abilities.
I focus on teaching sound, tried and tested principles.
It is presented in English.
