Hey people. Just doing a bunch of photos, so I'll do just light intro into house and elaborate later. Started a while ago, will probably be liveable Jan 2020. 50x50 Pole Barn, base sq ft is around 640, total is about 1015 sq ft not including covered walkways out building that are not directly attached. Will be 2 bed and 1 1/2 bath. Built on 10 acres covered in trees, well, bee farm, lots of fruit trees, and 4 generations living on property. All the stone came from less than 50 miles, all clay was harvested from pond I built, and sand is harvested from my creek, all straw is bought from Tractor Supply in compressed bales for $12 a piece. Only 2 people have ever really worked on it, no workshops, myself and and a paid intern that works full time and has now become primary cobber. All materials pretty much moved to site by tractor, and all cob mixed with 7 cuft mortar mixer. Also there is a youtube channel documenting everything in 30+ videos. Search for Cob Barndominium and the channel is John White. Ill do another photo dump of only mostly current pics.
Thanks alot Artie. Here is a little update. I sourced some 100% California Redwood from The Habitat for Humanity thrift store and decided to make my own barn door. It took me about a week working on it sporadically.
