Up here in Manchester we are building a pub.
Using traditional construction techniques and contemporary design.
Professional craftspeople will lead teams of volunteers to keep disappearing skills alive for another generation.
Builders, coders, designers and makers will collaborate to drive innovation and develop new ways of working.
All materials used in the construction will be traceable, the shorter the distance they have travelled, the better we have done our job.
This won't be quick and it won't be easy.
Right now we are at day one of this project and we will be logging every stage of the process here.
Wish us luck!
