As we have been on the road with #Comments and family, I realized I had not shared some of our more final pictures of the little cob house I built.

We spent under $500 on the entire project. The largest expense was time, followed by sand for the cob mixture.
In retrospect, I’d allow more time to complete the project and involve more people — but it was incredibly satisfying to see this structure come together. Thank you to everyone for encouragement along the way.
