I enjoyed watching this build and would love to build a building like this one day with my grandkids.Lots of clay on our property on the bottom side and rocks and gravel on the top side..
If you have a good connection and 14 minutes,I hope you enjoy the video.

Very nice video and very smart guy.  I noticed a few things.  #1 - no bugs!  For all the mud he was messing with, he always looked clean, even his shorts!  I'd like to know how long it took to build.  I like the way he used different colored soils for different applications.

Wonderful video. Thank you for posting it.
Just goes to show how a determined fellow can accomplish things that others would think not possible.  There is a lot of technology at work here but reduced to primitive conditions to make it manageable.

I've been watching his videos for awhile. Very neat. He has one he built similar to that but built a mud fireplace and chimney on it.

The radiant floor/bed heating is really a neat idea.  Paul, I enjoyed watching the whole video, thanks.
