Welcome!

This is the website for The Owner Builder,
the Australasian home builders magazine.

The magazine was established in 1982 and has been serving the interests of the owner builder ever since. Whether you are still thinking about buying a plot of land, planning and designing your home or already in the building phase, there will be something of interest.

Subject matter is diverse, including getting started, planning, designing, building, renovating, maintenance, energy efficiency, sustainable building - to name but a few.

Materials covered include mud brick, rammed earth, straw bale, timber, corrugated tin - and many more!

There is also a comprehensive mail order Bookshop, along with regular reviews.
