ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

Can We Learn Anything From Leicester City?

So, 5000/1 outsiders Leicester City have been crowned champions of the English premiership. Quite the achievement, but when you think about it the self build community faces a different but equally challenging set of circumstances. We compete against developers with greater resources to secure a site, we struggle to finance our projects and time and again we have to fight against a system that seems specifically designed to discourage us. Yet despite all that, we use the resources we have wisely, investing where it really counts, throw ourselves heart and soul into our projects and in the end, come out victorious.

Grit, determination, technical ability and skill, a band of loyal and encouraging supporters and above all a belief and confidence that despite the odds we can do it.

So folks, when you are down, and when it seems nothing is going right, just think about Leicester City. If they can do it, so can you.

Anyway, off to see a grown man cry. £100 on at the start of the season...Barbados here we come... ;)

Give me £30m (the cost of the squad) and I will build you a house in Barbados.
