Sean’s Adobe House — 1 Comment

  1. Sean Sand’s house has been one of my favorite ultra low cost houses over the last decade or more. Watch Kelly Hart’s video — A Sampler of Alternative Homes — for details and views of the completed home.

    Just like Kelly said, Sean’s house is a simple roundhouse made of earth, a central column and radiating rafters. Anyone can build a house like this. And note how the price of dirt hasn’t gone up much lately. Same with wood poles collected from a local forest. That means the cost would still be similar today — about $1,000 for a small roundhouse minus any appliances.
