Tonight’s show features Christina Ott, also known as the Barefoot Builder. At the age of 23 Christina built her own home mortgage free using a construction technique called cob. This ancient building method has been used on several continents and provides some special benefits to those wanting to become self-reliant.
Would you be interested in a house that you can build yourself, out of materials found on your own land, without special tools, for hundreds instead of thousands of dollars?
What if this house was bullet-proof, earthquake proof, impervious to fire, rot, or termites. If it was low-footprint and sustainable, and required very little external heating or cooling? What if it was invisible from the air?
Over the next hour, Christina discuss what cob is, educates away common misconceptions, talks about zoning and building code issues. and shows a simple test you can perform on your own land to learn if your land is cob material…
