Sage Stoneman’s cob home only cost $200 to build and allows him to live debt-free. He says, “I choose to live the way that I do because it’s a matter of mental health for me and emotional health, physical health as well, spiritual health.”
He crafted his home in California to feel closer to the environment and to make a living space that “feels like it’s a reflection” of nature by design. “I like to think of myself as the beetle, and on a more basic level, just the organic, flowing shapes are like — that’s where it’s at. It’s just beautiful,” he said.
The cob and wood he used to build were free since he found them on the property. He also used secondhand glass for the windows and reclaimed other wood materials from construction waste from other building projects. He only paid for screws, glue, and silicone.
The house has enough space for all of Stoneman’s essential pursuits, including music-making and writing. “I believe in a future where natural building and self-made homes are accessible. And not only accessible but guaranteed to all humans,” Stoneman said.
