At its simplest, this book explains all the steps and techniques needed to build your own home from earth.It also tells the story behind Jon Jandai’s own journey into earthen building; how his travels, observations, thoughts and philosophy all shaped his own practical experience — and how in turn they can shape your own. Jon’s TEDx talk, ‘Life is Easy. Why do we make it so hard?’, has been viewed many millions of times by people from all across the globe — and with good reason. The ideas behind the talk are powerful, yet simple and highly-relatable in today’s society. This book reflects this — demonstrating how a self-reliant, sustainable life can be achieved by anyone. The process of earthen building is explained simply, with easily-followed instructions. Everything, from choosing a site, through the choice of dirt, to flooring, plastering, and more, is discussed and demonstrated. This ancient method of building is brought up to date with a discussion of water and electrical systems, for example. This book is beautifully illustrated, with clear diagrams and lavish photography throughout. There is also a photo gallery, devoted to real-world examples of earthen building — both during construction and once complete.
