Ann and Gordon Baird sit on a wall of their half-constructed dream home made of cob, a centuries-old building technique using clay, sand, and straw, near Victoria, British Columbia. Their non-toxic earthen house will be equipped with solar panels, radiant floor heating, wind generators and a green roof to filter rain water.
