The house that was built for £150!

£150 cob house

I found an article today about a farmer who built the house pictured above for just £150.  The fabric of the building is made from clay, earth, dung and straw.  The man who made it, Michael Buck, used an old lorry windscreen for the windows and floorboards salvaged from a skip.  Here is the article:   http://money.aol.co.uk/2013/11/25/farmer-builds-house-at-a-cost-of-150/?icid=maing-grid7%7Cukt1%7Cdl5%7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D225636#!slide=aol_1592613

It looks like it belongs in a fairy tale.   🙂
