Someday I will build a house house

There are many types of owner built homes. I dream of building myself one someday. My favorite is stone but there are straw, cordword and even paper.

Another round house in Wales


I generally don't like round houses, but this is another Welsh home that is especially cozy. And the building method I could really relate to:
"Lift logs, prop up, nail together and continue until no longer wobbly."
Straw bale was used to infill between the log posts. I wonder how hard it would be to use slipformed stone instead.

They did most of the building while living in a tent with a baby and a toddler. Now that's the real thing.
