Frill Free Zone

The Frill Free Zone is where we get to the nitty gritty of living simply; eliminate all the unnecessary, useless, frivolous or giddy; it's where you get serious about creating your unique life that suits you to perfection.

  • get off the recycling train and learn ways of using your packaging, instead of filling the landfill.

  • Find natural materials close at hand that make a vernacular building style work perfectly in your climate.

The world is at the cusp of stopping waste in its tracks - what did our grand parents say? Waste not, want not...
