An Earthen House Built by Hand
It's very very important to know you can provide things for yourself
Build your own house grow your own food
Make your own medicine.
Walking his talk, Greg Crawford shows the magical wattle-and-cob house
he built with hand tools using local materials: alder trees in
the surrounding forest, and clay from what
later became the house floor.
Building his house was an "experiment in intuitive architecture
using common sense while "letting the building evolve,
change and grow on its own."
I see natural building, especially using cob, as a practical solution for our future situation. As we face societal collapse, people are banding together and moving outside the cities to start new lives for themselves. Building a new house out of cob and natural materials is a practical solution for shelter in the coming years.
