We bought a totally overgrown plot and built a six-bedroom eco lodge totally off the grid. We have been collecting for years and bought all the windows, doors, flooring and furniture pieces second-hand. Our architect built the steel structure and we did all the woodwork, flooring, painting and restoring ourselves.
