Intro


For at least three years now we have been watching on social media as Ken and Sue have literally sculpted their dream house from the soil of their family farm in western Iowa. Now Elaine and I are getting a chance to visit them for a tour of their nearly complete straw bale and cob home.

In a special Youtube #shorts Uncle Mud uses the mud sink--not the sink in the mud room, but a bathroom sink sculpted entirely out of sandy clay.
