How is KERF structured?


KERF starts with building stories and long form video content available through our free streaming videos. They cover many aspects of actual builds by contributors so you can see products, techniques and a variety of skill levels in practice. 


For inspiration we help you look for THAT idea or design that really speaks to your taste and skills through image discovery. 


We’re building an education library to help you plan better or dive into whatever aspect or project with confidence


Listen, learn and enjoy hearing builders share their experiences, companies discuss new products and learn the realities of taking on big projects from the men and women who are involved. A great way to discover new ideas, find better ways to work or inspiration for your next project. 


We’re creating opportunities to translate knowledge into skill with real world projects. In person events will help you gain experience and build lasting memories. Often our heads are so full of information that we aren’t sure where to begin, but putting into practice the ideas, products and methods you’ve been learning will help create the tactile connection and confidence needed to build bigger and better things.

Calculators and Budgeting Tools

Curating and building the best calculators to help you build better. We’re also curating and building tools to help you tackle budgeting and planning.


Before you pick up a tool you have to get dressed. Workwear is a huge part of any builder or doers day and we’re working to bring comfortable, durable workwear that will help you build better.

What about Pure Living for Life?

We will continue to document our personal journey towards a debt free, self sufficient lifestyle on Pure Living for Life in a way that fits our family needs.

KERF allows us to go more in-depth on various subjects and introduce more contributors providing a more diverse content around the topic of construction and building.
