21st Century Sod House

This is an amazing story of what may be the best sod house in the world. It is now on the historic registry of Canada. It’s energy efficient and was continuously lived in for 100 years.

Built by prairie pioneers and occupied continuously into the 21st Century this sod house and its long term resident, Edith Gardiner, have a lot to teach us about history and energy efficient living for today and the future.

  1. I like the part about the gas company guy who was complaining how they’d go broke if all their customers used as little gas as they did. Also, I’m very impressed with the quality of construction and longevity. Most sod houses fall apart within a few decades.
