It is 2017 and my parents were on holidays at Beyond Buckthorns and they told me during a walk that something needs to be done with one of the sheds, especially with the color of the walls, which was already coming off.

Permaculture Pocket Stencil Template

During a rainy day I went looking for nitrogen fixing shrubs and ended up watching a Geoff Lawton video where he interviewed someone who showed their design process. During that video I noticed that the designer was using a stencil template. Something I used back at school when I was a kid.

Continuous integration Part 2

Since I wrote about "Continuous Integration" some time has gone by. Good to have you here again. I have evaluated the design before implementation, ran a reiteration twice and then started implementing.

Continuous integration

The used process for this design is Obr3dim, an Obredim variant. Use the jump menu to dive into the different steps.
