  • Homebuilding is definitely primal



    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

    My wife and I have our own humble food blog. Not 100% primal, but we try to keep it interesting.

    And you're problem solving using the one organ that sets you apart from the other animals of the savannah.

      I started planning to build my own recently as well. Just bought a book on designing it and building it. I did just about every job needed to build a house when i was a teenager. It will take a couple of years for me to save the money (I dont want debt on it), but I anticipate a primal paradise durring the building phase.


      Also, I bought 23 acres in the woods to build it on, so I can raise my own cows, chickens, and garden... then fish and hunt for the rest. In 2-3 years I will be living super primal... and really cheap. As opposed to right now being pretty primal, and fairly expensive.


      Congrats on the house.

        Thanks for the comments. We're building on 5 acres in the country. Plans include goats, chickens, and lots of fruit trees and berries planted.
