Long time no post.

I've been busy shifting gears into more serious kominka restoration/workshops. Started a new project late last year with two others to fix up kominka to allow for housing/livelihood for both current residents and those looking to move here. Currently there are many more folks looking for housing here than there are livable spaces. Also of course trying to encourage a sustainable, hand-made type lifestyle and the skills and knowledge that go with that.

Great to have you back Brett,

Sounds like you have found an interesting and worthy project to use your restoration skills on and what better way to help develop your local community. I've always admired the work you do so shall be following you on Instagram, sadly I don't do Facebook (for a variety of reasons) but will look forward to seeing what you get up to on Instagram.

Nice to see you back
