"I am an owner-builder, in the process of building a small earth home (light clay with wood chip infill, earth plaster) in British Columbia. I am documenting the process and my thoughts about sustainability, building, policy, and life on my blog at http://lichenology.blogspot.com. I thought you might be interested in checking it out or adding a link."
I did check it out and was struck by the thoughtful demeaner with which he writes and the whole presentation, including lots of lovely photos. He also has a bunch of like-minded links to other blogs and websites. I recommend that you check it out as well.
