Building a marketplace for modular homes without code

Ben Tossell @bentossell

You may have seen this story featured in the Product Hunt newsletter... I interviewed @calebarclay for makerpad.co because he built an awesome looking marketplace without code, called Dwellito. He used Webflow, Google Sheets, Zapier and Airtable.

It not only looks so polished, but the idea of being able to buy prefab homes/offices/studios is really cool. I actually used to have an office which was a shipping container so this was super interesting to me

Here's the story: https://www.makerpad.co/stories/caleb-barclay-building-a-marketplace-for-backyard-homes

Enjoy :)

    In the article, he mentions CVS files multiple times, shouldn't it be CSV?

    Also btw, this is probably the most inspirational no-code story I've read to date. The way Caleb articulates his processes and experiences made it a pleasure to read, he's truly a gifted person on so many levels. And to think someone built the Dwellito website and business so quickly, while simultaneously working a full time job, is mind blowing.

    There should be a nocode hackathon for guys like this and Ben.

    Kudos to @bentossell for publishing the article. This is no doubt inspiring the hell out of a lot of people.
