Entertaining and so useful!

If you’re considering or planning or in process of building your own house, this podcast is well worth your time. Even if you’re doing a major renovation, there is a lot of useful information here for you. And for building nerds (stand proud!) there’s a chance to learn lots about various eco-conscious construction methods. And somehow almost all of this is entertaining even while you’re learning.
