Mr Michael Buck, a 59-year-old retired teacher of art from Oxfordshire, England decided to build an adorable cob house out in his garden for $250 (£150). Making sure to use only reclaimed or natural materials and with no gas, water or electrical mains Buck has been able to keep things simple while saving a lot of money. He built the entirely handmade home without a single power tool! The walls are painted with a plant resin and chalk mixture. Cooking is done on a little gas stove in the kitchenette or on the wood burner. Because he classified the building as a summer house he didn’t need permission from the city in order to build the unique structure.
