Learn How to Build Your Own Home: House Building Workshops for 2017 at The Witch's House, Perth WA

Learn how to build your own home by being part of the house construction team building The Witch's House

These House Building Workshops are led by experienced owner builder Graeme Young, skilled in timber framing, joinery, straw bale construction, steel work, brick laying and most things handy.

The workshops are designed to empower you to build your own home. 

Have tiny house plans?  Why, when you can build a roomy natural home suited to any climate yourself so inexpensively!  We will show you how.

Each workshop week is 5 days duration.  Each day there will be a small amount of classroom instruction and lots of hands-on experience using tools and actually building.

So everyone gets the attention they deserve, the maximum class size is 3 participants at a time.  

Setting for these workshops is our beautiful 5 acre Permaculture property in the rolling Bullsbrook hills, just one hour from central Perth.
