I feel the building is constituted of about eighty to eighty perhaps for 90 percentage of either traditional or recycled and determined materials [Music] [Music] no no I’ve labored on constructing sites in my historic job and noticeable cutting-edge development really lots however I’ve never constructed it is within the friend apartment or something [Music] I made up our minds that I used to be gonna purchase a piece of land I failed to be aware of what bit of land or how large it used to be gonna be I determined this bit of land on eBay surprising me I failed to be aware of what I was gonna construct due to the fact that the foremost thing about what i am doing here is just not determining what you wish to have after which hanging it there but it’s identifying what you want and then what assets you have round you to use so the buildings that come up out of this land shall be in shapes and types which might be dictated from what assets i’ve [Music] the procedure I used to construct it is known as cobb word or cord word or stack timber it has a couple of distinctive names the mortar that’s binding all collectively is called cob it is clay sand and straw combined together and it doesn’t relatively rate whatever in any respect I consider there is anything like seven tons of it on this building and it used to be a waste of my ft so that you simply variety of stomp on it together with your toes until it can be all mixed in the turf roof is a is a best characteristic it makes it mixture in to the woodland i love the fact that if you are probably 50 meters away you are not able to even see it the windows came out of my mum’s subsequent-door neighbor’s apartment they’re having their double glazing transformed nights at the window units they have been gonna go and skip so the again window I located down an alleyway it’s a fridge door like a glass fronted fridge door and that i type of discovered I thought in order to by and large come in just right use for the residence and ended up the back window most of the price was once matters like bits of pipe and the roof liner and stuff I think might be complete cost is ready three and a 1/2 4 thousand kilos or whatever like that yeah that is my condominium the place I are living it can be pretty comfy [Music] it has all of the present day matters that you traditional residence has quite and i have fresh going for walks water from a spring just up the hill have natural plug sockets like in an all apartment with 240 volt deliver which is goes via an inverter in the shed every roof joist rests on the one before it so leads to a spiral sample it’s self-supporting yesterday I left the door open and even I consider a bath bought in right here somewhere so I was woken up at four o’clock in than one with a bat flying round i am imparting my possess electricity water i’ve solar energy out on the slope available in the market and i’ve a hydroelectric procedure which is producing energy from the water and the little streams here so yeah the solar’s taking place now and this notion does no longer make much energy my pal Hannah’s coming over so i will flip the hydroelectric on and on the way to vigour everything in the course of the night time and the water comes together with them up the hill all of the method out there down this length of pipe has about 26 psi of pressure it squirts out the nozzle about 30 ft a 2d ample to most of the time take the skin off your hand in case you touched it it’s really powerful I had a particularly average life London usual day job bought up went to work socialized on the weekends I felt like I didn’t have ample time to do all of the exceptional matters I desired to do the the concept of working for like two-thirds of your existence and having very little time to socialize and do pursuits and matters it simply doesn’t sit down correct [Music] all of the bells mortgages electric water web tv licenses insurances just idly why are not good cash however everything just went everybody had their hand in my pocket unless there was once nothing left I did have a girlfriend on the time the building system and the moving method of it all I suppose was once a large contributor to and to us setting apart we variety of went our separate approaches simply earlier than I moved right here permanently I inspiration I was once going to be doing this with a partner however i finished up moving here on my possess after I was once within the tent for like a month on my possess it was once customarily probably the most hardest matters I’ve ever finished in my lifestyles watching back at now it does not seem that bad however I keep in mind on the time it was beautiful dangerous yeah plenty of times I just proposal out what am i doing sincerely yeah i am fairly pleased with it after I first moved here there used to be nothing right here it can be just an open area that been grazed on and i’m slowly bettering it and although i don’t earn so much now I more commonly have extra money now than I did then my outgoing Sarah very low i’ve very few costs so i don’t really have the stresses for having to wake up and earn a exact amount of money so I do have an web connection nevertheless it’s wireless that’s the best connection i’ve fairly to different infrastructure don’t feel i would wish to are living with out internet so useful educationally they when they built the condominium I needed to build the little workshop to maneuver my instruments i’ve extra energy than I virtually want for probably the most phase i have slightly gadget right here which i will check to see how much vigour I’ve bought anyone factor I did lots of the building on my own I most likely did dia eighty percentage of it alone I consider I get help from volunteers my pal Hannah she helps relatively a lot my lady friend’s been serving to – yeah I get furnished tons of help men and women had been fairly blissful to come back and volunteer I met dot online on a courting internet site seeing that I moved right here I didn’t rather know any person so I used to be rather why whatever at present and it’s pretty difficult to meet humans when you’re in a field when I was once going by means of tinder and that i saw the Christmas and building this condominium and that i was once simply particularly intrigued so I thought is anything wholly extraordinary and that i failed to think that it was once something that used to be genuinely relatively close to the place I are living it’s particularly a new relationship to the doctor we’re getting on quite well and he or she appears to revel in staying right here yes in view that then I’ve I have to construct bogs the new rest room and it’s the lozen gauze door which is virtually the only thing she requested however the door will come next this apartment is form of designed to final regularly round two decades with minimal renovation it might final quite a bit longer than that with really important protection nevertheless it’s not constructed to final eternally I desired to be competent to continue to exist the piece of land for a number of years earlier than I did predominant works like constructing a different condominium on account that I desired to see how the land reacted by means of special seasons so I knew once I build the condo so as to optimistically be the condo I are living in first of my life i know that it’s in the proper position I failed to put those concerns into this position when you consider that it is no longer as principal but even as I reside on this area right here which you can display the land and i can make a decision where I wish to build the condo my existence is countless numbers of instances richer now I think extra fulfilled and happier than I’ve ever been before I was once talking any person about like nostalgic style of watching back at what what age would you return to if you already know when you return to any age and i inspiration good I normally would not more often than not return now not even a month yeah i wouldn’t want to go back for thus where I failed to meet dot yeah so you realize yeah proper now i am kind of the happiest of them you [Music] you
