Yesterday we got a comment by an earthbag builder who was harassed and given the ‘run-around’ by building code officials while building his earthbag home. Here’s part of my response to what Phil had to endure.
Natural buildings are an ancient tradition with a modern appeal. Creating healthy, beautiful homes from natural materials such as earth, straw and timber, building naturally is the ultimate expression of ecological design. Building isn’t ‘done’ to us – it can be done by us. The skills and techniques used in natural building are hands-on and accessible, enabling us all to design our own healthy living spaces bringing people and the elements together.
So the time has come to start a new project. The workshop! this is going to be a huge project and is going to take about two years. im going to try and take you through the whole process on this project and hopfully even have some subscribers come and visit to help out. The building needs a name, so please feel free to offer some name ideas.
