These beautifully constructed 96 foot square, one bedroom homes, were a delight to visit. They cost around $500 to construct for the free standing single bedroom homes with most of the labour being donated by volunteers. All the little houses are built individually out of cob (sand, clay, water and straw) and are lovingly decorated in unique custom designs from found materials. See the shortie version below.

This is another great film from GEoff Lawton. It gets you to wondering, "Can't we solve the poverty problem?"
