In this weeks video we travel to the Californian desert and the tiny earthen home of natural builders Sasha and John. The desert landscape can be harsh and unforgiving and building homes for this environment can be an interesting challenge.
This amazing tiny natural home is completely off the grid and has been constructed using a variety of earthen building techniques, including cob, wattle and daub and earth bag construction. It’s DIY construction from natural materials makes this a long lasting and affordable housing solution.

This beautiful earthen home is one of many such dwellings located at the Quail Springs permaculture community in California. The permaculture community is home to educators, farmers, natural builders and people who are dedicated to regenerative, alternative living.
