Natural Building

Flashback to Mexico, 2016 when I was had first contact with buidling with natural materials.

The mediums was cob, a mix of sand, clay and straw and remains my favorite building technique to this day.

I documented the experience in a zine I had at the time which was my collage-travel-log of woofing in central America.

Soon after I met Jona who taught me a lot more about building with Earth & many other things. Together we embarked on a long long journey which ever continues!

~2019 — installing windows and using recycled bottles in cob walls.

After a few year break we began again to build with cob to improve the wood stove we use to heat our house – it is still a work in progress but you can see how it is going::

Have you ever built with cob? Let me know about your experiences in the comments 💛☀️
