BUILDING A MUD BRICK HOUSE

December 4, 2017

 

The trees to be removed are marked. The site is ready to be excavated

 

Before you get to this stage you’ve been through:

  • becoming a member of the co-operative (a saga in itself and another blog topic)

  • choosing, negotiating and purchasing a site

  • watching the sun rise and set during different seasons (because this influences your house orientation)

  • designing an environmentally friendly house

  • running your plans past the building committee

  • applying for a planning and building permit from the shire

  • being given the go-ahead

  • raising finance to build (without being able to use land as collateral for a mortgage)

We’ll explore some of the above in detail later.
