Above: This will be our future home. The walls will be Cob or also called a "pile of mud". This pile of mud is an engineered mix of very strong straw, sand and local clay/dirt. The clay content is around 25% of wall volume. The rock wall is made from local rocks on the land and also "urbanite", which is recycled concrete.
