Tuesday, October 28, at Particularly nice was the dining nook off the kitchen, the table made by local craftsmen and a very low ceiling, clearly evidenced in the photo below. I honestly don’t mind hippy dwellings but a gand sculpted house should have some variety I’d think.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Lloyd has been involved in publishing since the original Whole Earth Catalog for which he was the shelter editor.

I love to communicate through photography and writing. Inspiration for house designs in nontraditional forms. Thanks so much for the article, but special thanks for all the great pictures. Mostly nice pictures here, and not so much how to do it. There is a whole section on re-purposed vehicles and the cob houses are so hobbitish.

Thank you for posting this. Handbuilt Shelter on your Kindle in under a minute. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
