I have a dream to build a beautiful cob house. I found my perfect piece of property and plans are afoot to build a home of natural materials. I thought I would blog about the experiences and record my journey to fulfilling my dream.
I would like to thank all the mentors and proponents of natural building and also my fellow workshop participants who share my passion for this type of home.
I got back on the island Sunday Elliot needed one more day before starting the footings so Rudi came over and built my outside shower for me. We cleared away part of the embankment by my shed and he brought over a recycled aluminum rail from a boat which was perfect. After much digging and clearing we had a level spot, perfect for our purposes. I put some gravel down before laying the paving slabs into place.
This is what it looked like before we started.
Voila. I am so happy with how it turned out. :-)
Today I plan to get my shower curtain and hook up the propane tank to the water heater and get it working.
