This site is humbly dedicated to the memory of Alistair Knox, founder of the owner building and mud brick movements in Australia.



Build Your Own House is the ultimate web site for owner builders and DIYers, where you can swap notes, ask questions, buy and sell building materials, share your stories and tips.

Most of those functions, and lots more are available now on our popular Owner Builder Forum where you can interact with other owner builders and read all about owner building... from getting started to inspirational Real Projects involving mudbrick, strawbale, rammed earth, cob, and earthships made with recycled tyres. We'll even put your project on the Web free of charge.
