Hi there. My name is Brian Liloia, but I'm also called Ziggy. I started The Year of Mud with the construction of my first cob house in 2008-09, and I've documented the entire building process of that first foray into natural building. Since then, I've continued to document my projects over the years, and in 2012 we expanded to offer Natural Building Workshops, so you too can learn how to build your own natural home. In 2015, we acquired land in eastern Kentucky that will be the new site of many new building projects and workshops for years to come. This is the Year of Mud.
