When Danny and Katherine first learned about cob building, they were hooked! But they couldn’t jump right in due to a number of circumstances. Eventually, they were able to build a “trial” cob tiny home on her parents’ property, where they lived for a few years while saving and planning for their forever home on their own property which they own outright!
They’ve been in this 700-800 square foot cob dwelling now for a couple of years, and the lack of debt allows Katherine to stay home with her daughter. The house is absolutely stunning inside, with all kinds of details they spent a decade planning out “just right.” They even used all recycled windows to keep costs down and to be more sustainable.
Jenna at Tiny House Giant Journey did a great video tour with the couple which you can watch below, where you’ll even learn a bit about cob building. And if you really want to delve in, Danny and Katherine teach cob-building classes!
Corwin is a natural artist and loves spending time in the wilderness collecting beautiful branches to use in his creations: One of which is his own home, a caravan that he renovated using reclaimed wood for only $1,000.
His landlord wasn’t a fan of Corwin’s branch collection and gave him 10 days to get out. He found the trailer and made it into a home and a friend lets him park on their lovely land! It truly is a work of art. Since he moved in he’s created more tiny homes/van conversions using his skills, and you can see that all on his website, Healing Earth Homes. You could even hire him to make something for you! Watch the awesome video tour of his home from Living Big in A Tiny House below.
In this post I’m excited for you to meet Phil McCabe of Solscape Eco Retreat who we have thanks to Bryce and his team over at Living Big in a Tiny House in New Zealand. Phil and his partner are showing us their two tiny earth dome homes which were built for only $10k and total just 107 square feet each (about 10 square meters).
They were built using earth bag construction over at Solscape which is an eco model community that has been there for almost 12 years now. Their goal is to design and develop models of sustainable living so people like you and me can visit and experience them. These tiny dome homes have fun features like wine bottle windows and 360 panoramic views in a loft with meditation space below. You’ve really just got to see it in the video below to grasp it all.
A few years ago, Alex did a piece on some land for sale near Dancing Rabbit Eco Village. Let’s return to Missouri to check out some of the most recent projects of this thriving intentional community. Brian Liloia goes by Ziggy and has been living at Dancing Rabbit Eco Village for nearly four years. He started his busy blog, The Year of Mud, soon after.
Ziggy has given the tiny house and natural building community a huge resource by continuing to document his construction projects through his blog. Today, hundreds of blog posts take readers step by step through his building process.
