There's a whole lotta people at my place. And all of us are keen on natural building. At the same time, we do lots and lots of experiments.

Here's a new video about some of our experiments with cob floors. For those that are not familiar with what cob is, it is a mix of sand, clay and sometimes straw. I am fortunate that my property happens to have several types of clay and several types of sand. So we just dig it up and make cob stuff.

So here's a short video featuring some progress on some floor experiments.

Can you tell me a little bit about that stove in the background? Looks like a cob stove, with a pyrex baking lid for a stove window.

I hope to have a video out about that today or tomorrow. It is an experiment created by peter van den berg. But we have a video about the door here:
