A Masonry Fireplace I Love

I really like this heater I discovered on facebook. It is from a great blog/website Firespeaking. Firespeaking is currently represented by Max Edleson and Eva Edleson.  They are "dedicated to combining the inspiration of beauty with the precision and engineering of function in order to create magic and a continual reminder of the sacredness of daily life in our homes and public spaces."  As stated on their website,  their "work can mostly be categorized as “architectural” with a strong emphasis on using natural building techniques and community involvement."  Please contact them if you are interested in hiring them.  They are most interested in projects in Oregon, Washington and California.

Victoria BC couple build award winning cob house.

Great cob house in Victoria. Click here  to read all about it.

On a hilltop in Victoria, British Columbia, Ann and Gord Baird lived in a trailer with his two children for 20 months while they hand-built their dream home -- out of cob.

Beautiful Images of Cob Homes from Natural Homes

I hope you enjoy these beautiful images from the facebook page for Natural Homes. This is a great resource for anyone interested in natural building.

Great idea for a 'tree wall'

I love this idea for a wall in my cob house.
