My goal here was to build an off-grid cob home, but we were right on the doorstep of the tropical wet season so I was running out of time. I decided to get a builder in to build a basic structure, roof and poles from the land. We choose some nice Cadaghi & Hickory trees, well known for their natural termite resistance & hardwood durability. Eight huge poles went in the ground and a basic roof of iron with insulation under. This meant I could have a roof reasonably quickly and then rock/cob wall around the structure while we camped. I put down a very basic crusher dust floor watered in with a bit of cement mix & whacker packed down. So here we set up our 2 brm tent with sleeping in the front, storage at the back AND finally a roof over our heads, BLISS !!! I’ve been so lucky, we haven’t had much of a wet season this year, which makes living the way we do so much easier !!
