      Welcome to the Eco-Cabin website. Way back in the 70s Mom found a little advertisement for a book about this small cabin that can be built by two people. Well mom's wanted this cabin for twenty-five years About a year earlier she got holes dug and posts sunk to suport the cabin. They sat there for a while but lik most projects the first cut is always the hardest part of it all. while I was there in May 2001 to build the pump and utilities building (PUB) a building to cover the pump and hold a bunch of gardening tools. At one point waiting for a delivery of lumber I took the saw over to the posts of the eco-cabin foundation and cut them all to the marks and they all came out fine :o) In April 2001 we started to build an Eco-Cabin. So this site will document our progress in construction, our expeirences learned from the construction and some suggestions if you'd like to build your own Eco-Cabin.
So You Want To Build An Eco-Cabin

Building the new cabin
Build Log for the new cabin

If you do build an Eco-Cabin you will have a strong sterdy and stable building, with only a very few right angles in it.

(more to come)

I thought long and hard about putting the original book on this web site and I figured well this is greenpeace and the are a littl more open about copyright, and for a bunch of other reasons I have few concerns about making it available. Especialy since I beleive it is no longer findable any way. So here is the original Eco-Cabin book, a little ajusted to show better on the Weeb.

(If you are someone involved in making the original Eco-Cabin book or know someone please contact me.)
