Maybe it should be pumice cob?
Any way I have started
Tried posting 3 pics of the foundation hole, the drain pipes and then the gravel fill in but it would not post and I lost the whole long winded description. So now you are gonna have to wait for the long version as I am so tired that I will do it tomorrow. Just wanted to thank all of you at permies for all the knowledge, support and kindness in getting me to this spot. I am actually doing it because of you smart goof balls.
Thank you thank you thank you
I am building my house!

Trying to upload the pictures of the 20x24 foundation.
I am back filling the basement and the walk in green house to avoid possible flooding problems as we are near a creek.

Ok
This coming week, getting sharp#2 gravel for under the stone walls. Ordering the cool mortar that Stan Petersen developed Lime Strong check it out at http://www.limestrongfinish.com/master-of-plaster.html
Also gonna use it on the outside of the cob walls...
Hoping to start the stone walls as soon as the mortar comes. It is dependent on me getting electric up and running so I can use the well pump as the creek went dry.
Wish me luck here I go!

Pictures to follow

New video about what I am doing building my house on Facebook. It took 12 hours to upload it because my connection is so bad. That is why the link instead of trying to re-upload here.
