Bulding a Community to Accomplish the Extraordinary
Take one hundred strangers and make them friends. Take a pile of green building materials and turn them into your dream cottage. Do it all in three days.
It's not crazy, and it's not impossible
It's a Weekend Wonder.
The age of conspicuous consumption is over. People have less money, less time, and are conscious of their environmental footprint. Smaller is better, green is the new black, and leading the revolution is Weekend Wonder.
Each Weekend Wonder is a series of three episodes where a group of friends and workers assemble an economical, environmentally friendly home or cabin in one long weekend. It's about friendship, community, a new lifestyle focusing on smaller and simpler, coupled with extreme DIY.
In Weekend Wonder projects the only certainty is that there is no room for error, personalities will clash, friendships will be made, and the pressure will be on to move in and toast the new abode before the last evening is done.
Weekend Wonder #1 - Green by the Pound - are three episodes that follow the building of a green and energy efficient cabin over three days at Buffalo Pound Saskatchewan, July 29 - 31, 2009.
