Hullo. I'm Brian Liloia, but I'm also called Ziggy. Here I've documented the entire building process of my first cob house, built with little experience, and my continuing natural building projects with my partner April. The Year of Mud has expanded to offer Natural Building Workshops, so you too can learn how to build your very own natural home, in addition to reading all about cob, straw bale, timber framing & our continuing projects online. This is the Year of Mud.
