My wife and I are working on building our own home (with the help of my dad). I was thinking while painting yesterday and came to the conclusion that homebuilding is definitely primal.
- Lots of low intensity activity (moving all day)
- Random high-intensity activity (hammering)
- Lifting heavy awkward things (lumber, scaffolding)
- Climbing (up and down the scaffolding and ladders all day)
- Lots of sunshine and exposure to the elements
- Learning how to do new things
- Good callouses
