Which is why Building Country Comforts is so handy. A reissued combination of two books authors Robert Inwood and Christian Bruyère penned in the 1970's, this book has it all. Rife with ideas, you'll find something in here no matter the size of your property, just as we have. From wood furnaces to composting toilets, if you've got some land, this book has something for you. And, yours truly wrote the forward. I was approached by an editor at Sterling Books this past summer asking if I might be interested in providing some introductory text for the book. Given its subject matter, I leapt at the offer.
And, as the forward author, I was given several complimentary copies of Building Country Comforts, one of which I'd love to bestow on a small measure reader. So, to enter, just tell me about a building project you'd like to do. It could be terracing your hillside (that's mine, along with building an outdoor cedar hot tub/sauna and a treehouse for Huxley), or creating a compost bin or erecting a chicken coop or making a pizza oven. Or something smaller, like making a bookshelf for your own growing collection of homesteading books, or a spice rack, for all the delicious herbs and spices you've been collecting. Anything, really. I'll leave the contest open until next Monday, the 9th, at midnight EST. Go try your hand, at winning, and at building something! Hubs and I will assuredly be doing the same!
