Dirt Cheap Building ~How to Build a House for $3000

“With $3000 for supplies and nine months of full time labor, I was able to build GOBCOBATRON, a small cob house with interior dimensions of roughly 15′x13′, and a footprint of (again, roughly) 20′x18′. Practically all of the labor was completed by hand (and foot!), including making and applying all of the cob.

It’s true… you can build your own cob house with little money, but with lots of time and enthusiasm. Extra hands never hurt, either! I can easily say that my Year of Mud was the most satisfying experience in my life. There’s nothing quite like the experience of building your own home with little more than your hands.”
