Our very own Sasha & John had the wonderful opportunity to be interviewed by Bryce Langston of Living Big in a Tiny House. In the video they give you all a special look inside their beautiful earthen home here at Quail Springs.
Be sure to head over to the Living Big in a Tiny House website to read the full article and see extra photos! Also, a special shout out to The Real John Gary for the music at the end of the video!

Help Legalize Earthen Building
CALIFORNIA NEEDS BUILDING SOLUTIONS THAT ADDRESS OUR HOUSING CRISIS AND OUR WILDFIRES.
Quail Springs has been building with monolithic adobe (also known as “cob”), a fire-resistant and affordable material, for over a decade. While earthen building has been practiced around the world for thousands of years—in fact, some of the oldest buildings in Santa Barbara are built from adobe—a lack of modern testing data makes it nearly impossible to build with earth in California today. Last year we conducted seismic testing on cob walls with Cal Poly, and this year we’re planning to conduct an official fire safety test. With this official data we intend to create a streamlined and affordable pathway for anyone who wants to permit and build an earthen home in California.
