I am still actively searching for a landowner who would be willing to rent-to-own ( a.k.a. "Lease option") me an acre or two upon which I might build an Octagon Strawbale House. It would be tiny and self-sufficient.
It would be surrounded by vegetable and flower and herb gardens and I would use it for a sanctuary and art studio, a home base from which to travel out. Please contact me at I am also on Facebook

Here's a great link and pictures that Lloyd Kahn recently posted on his blog. I go there every few days to renew/respark my dream of building a strawbale house. One of the things that I want to incorporate is cob and clay in a variety of places. This is a really inspiring website. Check it out.
Also here's another plug for Lloyd Kahns books and blog. He is the most amazing creative spirit .
His books Shelter, Homework and Builders of the Pacific Coast have inspired countless numbers (millions perhaps nowdays with the internet helping) of folks all over the world.
check out his blog by clicking on the link to the right in my Favorite blogs list.
