How to spend a rainy Sunday… when you’re not doing this…

We finally have a day of rain in the forecast for tomorrow — a 100% chance. I will definitely take it. It has been weeks and weeks of drought here. To celebrate, here are a bunch of fun building links. Perhaps you have your own rainy Sunday coming up. Check out these cool natural building and carpentry websites in your time off:

the Carpentry Way : Intense, detailed, very technical Japanese carpentry website. Just check out the latest post on tatami mats and their layout. Whoa.

Giant Cypress : Another nifty blog specializing in Japanese hand tools and their usage

Mud Pond Hewing and Framing : Mike Beaudry’s site dedicated to the craft of hand hewing, old barns, and timber framing

limewindow : Blog dedicated to the beauty and functionality of lime mortar, and the construction of a traditional stone house in Ireland

Tiny House Swoon : Tiny house eye candy, lots of pictures and inspiration

    That LIMEWINDOW site is very compelling, esp the way one can watch the progress from the original old ruin to the current stunning creation.
