Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. ~St Francis de Sales
The interior of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton’s (1874-1922) hut in Cape Royd, Antarctica. The hut was built in 1908 and used as a base camp for one of Shackleton’s attempts to be the first to reach the South Pole. He and his team spent nine months here, enduring temperatures as low as -58 F (-50 C). The hut remains as it was abandoned in 1909, preserved by the extreme cold and low humidity.
I love cob homes.
carolyn is building a cob structure for a class this semester. i have to send her this ! <3m
This particular green building is made entirely out of cob, a mixture of clay, sand, and straw.
Meka Bunch of Wolf Creek, Oregon built this stunning cob house over a four year period. Complete with hand-sculpted furniture, shelves and nooks built directly into the walls, arched windows, and a killer custom staircase, his cob building is a divine artistic achievement.
