Anyone?

I'm building a tiny house made of cob in Oregon. I like cob and don't have much money, so this is perfect. Just got 2 acres of land for a cheap price. Nice farm land with a view.

Anyone else planning to build themselves and get a house without having a mortgage? If so, share your ideas here! We can help each other out.

Some cob houses I like

Earthships are cool, but not my style. Too big, too grand. I like little spaceships. Great site though. Lots to learn there.

I like little-space ships too !!! Nearly as much as I like unintentional jokes !! Lol ! ''Great site'' and ''lots to learn'' was exactly my point tho' & re. 'little-space-ships', I'm recommending: http://vimeo.com/15351476 - a brilliant li'l independent guerilla doc. that I came across courtesy of jart (u may know of her ;-) - when she posted it here on one of her 'vegan-spasms'. Bless her - it nearly made me want to learn to sail, as opposed to give up meat, fish and eggs, lol and u may be better off buying a boat than land right now ... for obvious reasons.

verum ex absurdo ...

I just don't think earthships are in the same category as tiny homes.Some common goals for sure. I don;t know. I'm into small cob homes right now.

Good doc. Thanks.

After bank takes their house, a family of four moved into a 168-square-foot home. All they are missing is a tub, but tubs are hard to clean right? Amen.

It's sad they lost their big home, but good they managed to find a way to live debt free. They'll be able to keep building their homestead without fearing that they will lose it later on.
