Farmer builds a 'cob house' for just £150

4 posts in this topic

A farmer has built a house for just £150 using an ancient building technique and materials he found in skips.

Michael Buck, 59, used only natural materials or unwanted items to build the 'cob house' at the bottom of his garden in the Oxfordshire countryside.

The former art teacher, now a rural smallholder near Oxford, has started renting out the property and his current tenant - a worker on a neighbouring dairy farm - pays for her lodgings in milk.

Our local Housing Association has been building homes from stuff they found in skips for years! Most of it cardboard.
