General description

  • Secondary home
Our houses and farm are off the grid. It is a small cob cabin, secondary home. There is an outdoor kitchen and outdoor bathroom. It is located in a 5 acres land with a seasonal river 50 meters away. We live 3 km from San Marcos Sierras, a bohemian hippie town with dirt roads, a small river and a busy tourist season in summer with a lot of cultural activities and entertainment.
The house was built by us and it is a mix of local stones, wood and cob. We have compost toilets We have and outdoor sitting area under a big tree and a pond in front of the house. We are surrounded by native vegetation and organic gardens. The water comes from a well and it is very good.

  • Farm animals
We have 4 dogs, 5 cats, 2 horses and 30 chickens. The animals need to be fed and take care of.
Food, water and attention are the needs. It can take couple of hours a day to do the task.
Also the plants around the house need to be watered.
Once a week clean the chicken coop and fix the nesting boxes.
Keep the food and water containers clean all the time. Make sure the animals are ok and not injured since we live in a rural area.
There are also some wild animals like foxes, pousons, lizards, lots of birds ...

. It is made out of cob and stones, which keeps the temperature very confortable inside. Lots of windows so you can have a feeling of living outdoors. It is vey open.....just one room in a shape of a spiral. Very private, separated from the main cob house. It is rustic but very comfortable and cozy.
