With the help of some great volunteers and local workers, all of these tasks have been completed and the structure is looking beautiful!
There have been a whole lot of developments in the construction of the ecohut over the last month. This is mainly due to the fantastic volunteers we’ve had on site who’ve helped us cover an immense amount of ground; it’s really starting to look like a library (minus the books). Shortly before leaving on our trip to Laos, we reached a major milestone: the final earthbag was placed! After 2,000 bags, it felt incredible to be done.
This tiny house is ready for anything! Completely off the grid, this tiny home on wheels generates it’s own solar power, collects rain water, uses solar water heating and even generates it’s own biogas for cooking.

In this video I show how to make and use my favorite soup can camp stove. The stove in this video is an excellent little wood stove that burns fuel cleanly, and unlike DIY alcohol stoves can burn for long periods of time without needing to be extinguished to refuel. I also prefer wood stoves over alcohol because you don’t need to carry fuel with you; sticks are a renewable resource you can find almost anywhere.
Search our blog for related videos on twig stoves, camp stoves, rocket stoves, etc. If you’re not a camper just realize these stoves make great backup stoves if the power ever goes out. I love all of these simple low cost DIY stoves so there’s quite a bit of content here on this subject.

Natural buildings are an ancient tradition with a modern appeal. Creating healthy, beautiful homes from natural materials such as earth, straw and timber, building naturally is the ultimate expression of ecological design. Building isn’t ‘done’ to us – it can be done by us. The skills and techniques used in natural building are hands-on and accessible, enabling us all to design our own healthy living spaces bringing people and the elements together.
The UK has a rich tradition of natural building and natural architecture that is seeing a renewed interest. Building naturally is one such response to Living With The Land.
