  • Thanks for the slide show. That really helped me to understand the stages and also the construction methods. Not sure if I’ve got the amount of work involved though.
    That’s a beautiful house too: it’s all very inspirational and makes me want to stop waiting and sign up for the permaculture course riaght away.
    Is there a way of embedding the slideshow into my WordPress blog? It’s mainly about alternative transport but I want to start looking at other areas where we want to live a different way.

    Excellent resource, Ziggy! Thanks for making that available. I had been especially curious about what the foundation looked like before you built up an urbanite or cob. Now I know!

  • Marke: Good to hear from ya! Yea!

    Andy: Absolutely! You can grab the HTML code here, in the upper right corner (‘Share’):

    As always, all of the photos from the building process can be viewed here:

    Thank you for posting this slideshow. I too like the more complete sequence than what you usually see. It is a beautiful home and very inspiring!
    Did it really take you a whole year and how much time did you have to spend on making it?
