::: One Day At A Time ::: What do you see when you look at this photo? A lush garden and cozy hand built home? Do you want to know what I see? I see a dream being built day by day, but I also see too many weeds gone to seed, flowers that never grew, deer damaged trees and a rose that I planted that has yet to bloom. This homestead thing doesn’t work unless you do! And every day while looking around at how far we’ve come, I’m also constantly thinking about how far we’ve to go. I think about how I work too much at a picture perfect farm that has a whole staff dedicated to beautification and landscaping and yet I compare my home to that place. I think about how many plants I planted that did not make it. Or how those pesky blackberries keep trying to take over the woodpile that still needs to be chopped and split. I imagine that undertaking a homestead project is much like having children: you always wish you could do more for them; be better and around more. But ultimately you settle into knowing that your job will never be complete and so you just keep watering the seeds you’ve grown and praying for the best.

This little cottage was built entirely with local natural materials (mostly the wood structure) and salvage materials (for everything from windows to furniture). The exterior walls are local strawbales built around a wood frame.  The floor and interior walls are built with clay soil dug right out of the ground at the building site.  The windows are cast-aways (new, but misordered and sold at a discount). All of that brings down the total cost of materials.

The labor costs were also cheaper.  Most of the walls and finishing were done by the home owners and via natural building workshops.  People come to learn how to build naturally, and at the same time, the owners get their cottage built.  Win-win.

Natural building creates the potential, like no other construction method, for exchanging your time for direct costs.  That does mean you need to have the time, energy, and patience to participate in every aspect of construction.  If you can dedicate that time, you can build your home, with high quality, and on a lower budget.

I love earthship homes and Toas NM.
Oregon needs more earthship style homes! Buy Oregon land and build!

@oregonland.cc  from @claudiacastrolev - Bucket list check for me✅
Visiting and staying at the Earthship Biotecture Community in Taos,NM
This breathing, living sustainable home is made of tires compacted with dirt - many have their own greenhouses inside... Thomas learned how to build one many many years ago and it reminds us that it is possible.
just being here gives us inspiration for living off the grid and in a way that honors our beloved Earth mother - and gives back without much away...
Hope you enjoy the vid. Highly recommend coming to visit💜🙌🏽

One of the biggest differences I see in homes where design is highly valued and prioritised ... as opposed to those that are about all the rooms and finishes ... is light. Lovely light. Natural light - harnessing it, having it enrich your daily life, connect you with outdoors, lower your energy bills, improve your mental health - is the one essential factor in a home that works. It’s a guaranteed feel-good factor. Prioritise the understanding of sunlight, how it moves, and how you can optimise it in your design. Thank me later 😉❤️👍🏠

Building a home does not have to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars! And on top of that, we should demand more from our homes... space for food production, passive solar heating, rainwater catchment and more 💧🌱 I have always been fascinated by the @earthship 🔥 Have you been in one?.

Apparently it’s cold outside. As long as the sun is shining it doesn’t bother me. -47 Celsius outside vs. +24 Celsius inside (-52F vs. +76F). That’s with the boiler and stove off. Only #passivesolar heat... just about time to open a window and cool off. 🤣.
