Building a cob house yourself is not for the faint hearted.
You have to sacrifice and struggle, heave and sweat.
It is said that the three toughest challenges to face in modern life is, in no particular order:
Building an Offgrid house from scratch, practically alone
Having 3 kids of young ages
Working full time in the week, full time on the house on the weekend and now also changing jobs.
Therefore, I dedicate this script to my wife, Anel.
Babe, it’s been a long, tough and rocky road where we’ve struggled with and against each other, torn into each other in frustration, run away from each other in anger, cursed each other for the curse of this dream.
And here we are today.
Almost there babe, almost there…
Thank you for you. Thank you for it all
We have learnt more in these few years about tenacity, grit and not giving up than most will ever learn in a lifetime.
The seed seeks the sun and must work hard and long to break through the heavy earth above it. Keep on pushing, it will feel the warmth of the sun. Keep on pushing.
Babe, I feel the warmth, we are close.
I love you.
