A friend of mine is coming over to visit for tea. He's been talking about building his own cabinets for the house he's building, vs buying already built ones and wants my opinion on some he's going to go look at. I don't know if he'll be using plastic knobs or metal or wood ones, guess I'll see that soon too. The house he's building is really cool. It's round!! First he built a huge square deck, then built the round house on top of the deck. Most unusual, though it's really great. It's around a 30 minute drive from town, way up a mountain where there isn't even hydro lines. He packs water from a nearby creek & has a generator for power, planning to install solar panels. This house will remain 'off the grid' if he has his way... though it sounds like he may not have that luxury.
