Hutters' Rally: Edinburgh 2017

Many readers will be familiar with the A Thousand Huts project which aims to promote rural hutting  for living, working and recreation, lobbying in particular for changes in the Scottish Planning Policy. They will be holding an interesting event on November 18 in Edinburgh. Here's what they say about it:

Have you ever wanted your own wee place in the country? A weekend retreat for you, your family and friends? Millions of Scandinavians have that, but almost nobody in Scotland. Well, there’s a revolution brewing that’s going to make it possible, right here. The Scottish Government has just made it much easier for you to build your own simple, off grid hut. Come and join us on November 18th in Edinburgh to find out how you can make this happen. Hear from campaigners, hutters, woodworkers, and architects. Meet other self-builders, see designs, perhaps even find land to rent or buy, and talk to dreamers like you who just want to get into the great outdoors and put their feet up – in their own But n’ Ben.

More details at their website or on eventbrite. Among those speaking will be Jonathan Avery, designer of the NestHouse at Tiny House Scotland.
