Why I Build Sustainably

i am a total novice, and think its very important for the future, to have friendly buildings, hopefully i can get my grandsons interested, while they are still small, ones nearly 4 and the other is nearly 8, i am their only alternative hope. the idea to me to be able to build with natural materials is great and cant wait to get my hands mucky. if my nails are not dirty by the end of the day, then i haven't done much. i love gardening and my grandsons also join in.

Building Styles I'm Interested in

Cob
Rammed Earth
Earthship/used tires
Straw Bale
Adobe/Mud Bricks
Reclaimed Materials
Local Materials (ie Sustainable Wood)
Thatched
Stone/Flint walls
i am very interested in all styles of building, not so much the stone, but clay/cob/strawbale all feel very warm places to be.
