Thanks so much for sharing your information and experience with us! I am in my early 30s and have a husband and two children (elementary and middle school aged). We pay a small rent fee now and live in a large house with family. But we are interested in building our own house. I'd like a cob house, personally, but building a house like yours may be just what we need to have while building he cob house! Brilliant! I have a question for you. Would you happen to know anyone homesteading or in tiny houses with children? I'd love to know how much space extra is needed when you add kids to the equation. I don't want mine to be uncomfortable, especially as we enter the teen years. Thanks again!
