“Peak Moment 215: “I think it’s very very important to know you can provide things for yourself? build your own house? grow your own food? make your own medicine.” Walking his talk, Greg Crawford shows the magical wattle-and-cob house he built with hand tools using local materials: alder trees in the surrounding forest, and clay from what later became the house floor. Building his house was an “experiment in intuitive architecture… using common sense while “letting the building evolve, change and grow on its own.””
