I’m working on a new course that focuses on sustainable development and housing. I’ve come across so many interesting links, articles and videos, I decided I should share some of them here.

Time being at a premium for me these days, I may only be able to post some of my favourite videos or articles with little comment. But I hope they’ll be of interest to someone.

I’ve been particularly interested in cob or straw bale houses, homes built with minimal wood, clay and straw bales (which apparently provide a very high R value. I’d love to live in a home like these: rounded edges, earthy and creative. Couple these with some solar panelling, and it seems quite possible to go off the grid. That sounds good to me!
