Janaia Donaldson went out to interview the owner/builder of this tiny earthen cob house that was built by hand. In this video interview, you’ll get to hear how Greg, the builder, decided to build it and how he did it. He also discusses different ways that we can provide for ourselves including building our own homes, medicine, and food. It took Greg four summers while working full-time at a job to complete the cob house, but he began living in it around two years in. It’s a two story structure made with materials found in the woods and he uses it mostly just as a summer house because he travels during the other parts of the season.

He says just about anyone can build a structure like this and that it requires no special skills or intelligence to do it. The most important skill? Common sense.
