This Woman’s Magical Cob House Was Built With Earth & Reclaimed Materials

In this video from ExploringAlternatives, we are treated to a guided tour of a 400 sq ft DIY cob house built using cob (sand, clay and straw mix), together with reclaimed materials and some found materials such as driftwood that was used for shelving.

And what a fantastic home it is. It has two rooms downstairs, a sleeping loft upstairs, with bathroom / toilet in a separate 10×10 “outhouse” building. I think having the bath and toilet in a separate building is a great idea – especially in a tiny house it’s nice to just get that toilet away from the living area.

Cob is a traditional building material made by mashing together sand, clay and straw – typically stomping it with bare feet – and then packing it down in layers to build up the walls. I was a bit surprised to learn that trash was included inside the walls “to keep it out of landfill” but it’s going to end up being demolished at some unknown point at the future, which leaves a challenge for someone else to deal with in future. Diamond-shaped glass blocks were sourced on Craigslist and included in scattered through the walls – and these let in additional sunlight light all over the building which adds a beautiful touch. South-facing windows angled just right let in not only more light but winter warmth.

The property had its own well water so she’s off the grid in that regard. Cooking and hot water are supplied by propane and by a wood butning stove, but a home biogas system has been acquired in order to create methane from food waste – now that’s definitely a good ecological move.

The use of cob in a rainforest has been questioned due to the potential effect of continual rain on the walls – however Marie reveals that the secret is to have a roof with a wide “brim” that gives plenty of coverage to the walls from direct rainfall.

Electricity-wise, she does have mains electric but has some solar panels to make up some of the need and perhaps provide an emergency supply.

One of the keys to tiny house or van life is making the best use of available space – for example areas such as under the sofa are utilized with crates that fit.

This is a near-perfect tiny home that doesn’t feel cramped at all despite its small footprint! Finally we learn that “living simply” was an intentional ecological choice, as well as living mortgage-free, which can free up your life from the grind in a big way.

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:

According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.


It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.

Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!

As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?

But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!

The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.

This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
