Empowered with Mud

 I think most of my readers are aware that we live in a self built cob house. Cob is so empowering. People with no money and no building skills can make themselves beautiful homes with, simply, their hands and the earth they stand on. I've been finding these videos really inspiring, coming back to watch them again and again.

Look at the price estimates on these beautiful homes; that's empowering!

Watch this one all the way to the end; these people are living real, authentic lives!

Okay, I'm inspired! Weee! :D


  1. I hadn't heard of cob houses before, thanks for the videos! Just found your blog today and really like it. :) Can't wait to see what happens in your yard when the snow melts.

  2. Thanks for posting the link to the archives about your house construction. I've been reading your blog for a quite a while now and was really interested in how you built it! My husband and I are hoping to get a piece of land, build our own place and start doing things more self-sufficiently so I love reading about how you all do it; it gives me tons of ideas and encouragement! It can be daunting to think of all the work that goes into doing and providing most things for yourself when you're still stuck in the middle of a society that wants you to depend on it for everything. You all are very inspiring and help show me it's not only possible but also so fulfilling to live a simple life that glorifies our God! Thank you :)
