2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Wow, it's so amazing that real people can live in a house like that outside of a book. The house is totally awesome, but I personally wouldn't want to live there. I'm too much of a city girl. ;)

That is unnervingly like the dream house I have in my head for 'when I win the lottery I will build this'.

Oh, that place.  I love, LOVE the fact that the house was built by hand, at low cost and with reclaimed materials.  The same guy is currently working on the Lammas project, I think, and stresses that while he has experience building houses in practice, he's not got tons of construction specific qualifications.

Sigh.  I hope I get the chance to build my own little house one day.

Lammas (the community in which this house is located) is growing exponentially.  I think this gorgeous house has offered a lot of inspiration to prospective residents.
