Time To Go

Saturday, September 15th, 2007

Diorama Window

For several years I have written building articles for BHM. All of it was to give you, the readers, some alternative ways to think about building homes.

On this blog I have discussed different ways to become a builder or, at least, build your own home to save money.

My 30+ years of building has been in the form of projects. Buy land, build a house, live in it awhile, then sell it and start a new project. Well, it is time to do it again.

For some time now, my wife and I have been preparing to start what will perhaps be our last project. When I am in ‘building mode’ I am working more than 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Momentum is important. Some of the parts of this new project have been under construction during my off hours but now it is time to turn it into a full time priority.

This new project is different than all my others. It will be off-grid. In fact it will be offshore. The last details have been arranged and we are ready to go. So…this will be my last blog posting.

Sometime in the future, if this project works out well, I may write about it. For now, goodbye and live well.

    Say it ain’t so! I have been enjoying reading your blog very much and am disappointed that you won’t be writing more, at least for a while.

    I wish you and your wife well in your new endeavor, and I hope that you will start up your own blog in the future that will revisit alternative building, perhaps when you come back “on the grid”.

    Thanks for all the great ideas!

  2. Jason Says:

    I must echo Devin’s sentiments. Yours has been one of my favorite blogs to read.

    Thank you, David. I wish you well.
