Unperturbed by all the admirers, the #hobbithouse stands in its quiet glory against the backdrop of the #cobcarcottage. 
Hugged on the South and East with thick cob #thermalmass and enveloped on the North and West with claystraw adobe #insulation. 
Notice the birdhouse suite to the right of the entrance, the split rock that came out of nowhere to become the entrance step, the creepers rushing up to meet the sedums on the #livingroof... #loveshack #magichome #naturalbuilding #wattleanddaub #cob #adobe.

#masonryheater that will keep a 2,000 SF super-insulated #strawbale home warm with one fire a day
(the door on top is a pizza/bread oven)

The masonry heater burns at over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.  At that temperature, over 90% of the available fuel is burned & turned to heat in the fire. (An open fire burns only 40% of the available fuel.) The excess heat generated by the fire is absorbed into thermal mass material...in this case 4

The cob is made with clay soil plus coarse sand. #efficientheating #thermalmass #staywarmandcozy ...

I dream of a cabin in the bush.
.
A little bolt hole, to escape to on weekends. A place to unplug, de-stress, listen to the birds and feel the rain.
.
A place like this stunning ‘cabin’ designed by Brian Steendijk for a pair of enlightened clients, in the range south-west of Brisbane.
.
A girl can dream, right?
.
If you dream of cabins too, check out my article in @sanctuarymag or on my website (link in bio). And drop your cabin must-have items below; I’m always finessing my dream in my head!!

If you couldn’t tell, we kind of love rammed earth. That’s why we keep designing mechanical systems for houses that use it. Here’s a brilliant example in Blanco, TX that we designed with our friends at @jobe_corral_architects and built by our amigos at @pilgrimbuildingcompany - a pretty awesome project team. The Jobe-Corral team wanted to give the family a real sense of sturdiness and place. And of course, we wanted to make sure they were comfortable and breathing clean, healthy air. Just as it takes a lot of precision and care to get the rammed earth walls right, it takes a lot of thinking and consideration about how to treat thermal mass walls in a climate that doesn’t always have large diurnal swings. The mechanical systems have to be dialed in, especially when you take into account the structural coordination that takes place in a custom home like this. We were lucky to have a great project team to collaborate with and just look at the final result. Tag a freind who'd enjoy this!

Now that’s a rammed earth wall. There will also be an earth floor, green roof, marrakesh renders, cob walls, earth renders ...
It’s part of a passive solar straw bale & straw panel home we’ve started. This internal structural rammed earth wall will help keep even temperatures through the year. Keep your eyes peeled for the next stage. Thank you @olnee_rammed_earth @gypsywilson77 @narara.ecovillage you’re making this world better.

Rammed earth walls for a perfect temperature inside the house. Thermal mass accumulates heat from the sun during the day and releases it at night inside the house. #ecolodge #vredefortdome #soilarchitecture #rammedearth #thermalmass #huyberechtsbrothers @glhplus.

Sixty degrees yesterday, 
gently snowing today. 
The thermal mass
of granite and brick
pavers retain
heat longer than
the ground, melting
the snow more quickly,
and leaving behind
joint patterns marked
by lines of lingering
fresh snow.
