rather than trying to be a full-range supplier of building materials and services, we have come to realise that fri:dom also means freedom of choice. every person has different needs and budgets and we want to encourage people to make use of private/local networks during the building proces and use pre-existing building materials if desired.
In a nutshell, we promote customer's doing the electricity of their house together with a family member who's an electrician, buying their cladding from a local family-run wood supplier or going on a treasure hunt in order to find second-hand windows and doors online. Even if direct participation in the project is not possible (e.g. disabilities), there are many ways to connect oneself to the process and become a part of the construction of their home.
