  1. WAIT! Isn't "GF" usually short for GIRLFRIEND?? So does that mean those mommas are somebody else's girlfriends? Oooooooo do the husbands know? lol

  2. If you plan to rototill the floor in a circular pattern, go from the center out so when you finish you cam step to the other level and you'll have a pretty floor ready for cement.

  3. You probably had this question 1000 times but I’ve never seen it and I’m finally going to ask it where are the bathrooms for these bedrooms

  4. Are you doing anything special to protect the bottom of the wood rails from the concrete? Unprotected the wood will rot right off at the ground, break off and no more support.

  5. After you finish that building you need to build a couple of new houses for people to come and visit and experience your way of life…. I'm pretty sure that will be in your plans anyway good luck look forward to watching

  7. Hey, I am wondering if the windows/candy jars a placed for aesthetics or passive solar
    or both? I am seeing some very neat ideas coming together in this build, congrats.

  8. I'm glad you filmed that part with Anna Mae. You've been doing it so long you make it seem effortless, and it's good to see that it takes some time and elbow grease to get the cobbing done.

  9. You guys have got this stuff down! This build seems to be going so quick! Keep up the good work guys da da da da daaaa I’m loving it!

  10. I love you guys everything about you all is inspirational. I enjoys your videos and one-day I hope to build my own earth room. Thank you for all you do.

  11. I love your videos and the beautiful buildings you guys make. But sometimes ur videos can be very shaky and make my eyes hurt if I watch a long one. Consider using a gimbal, checkout this one.

  12. WOW is this build ever coming along. Looking great! Those two levels are going to be so so cool. Hope you all had a super Thanksgiving.

  13. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ you guy have waaaay too much fun πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!! Love it. It is going along beautifully. Thank for sharing! Hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving – but I am pretty sure you did. Take care and be safe, Blessings

  14. Love Shea’s design with the lower / earth-sheltered (cooler!) space; the project looks great! Curious: are you not worried about ground contact / rot on those stair legs? Is it a special wood, maybe?

  15. Lmao…your dad was putting the leg on the step, he just screwed it on. Stepped back & said all we need now is to fill the hole with concrete. Then the next scene is a mixer going & in my mind said NO, not with that kind of mixer…U don't mix concrete with a kitchenAid

  16. Your family is amazing. when we are out west we would love to stop by and help with a project if it is an option. Happy Thanksgiving.

  17. Looking so cool! Great hairdressing skills Shae! You should think about becoming a hairdresser. I was a hairdresser for 24 yrs. I started when I was 17 professionally. I learnt my trade in high school, then I apprenticed for several years, and challenged my exams instead of going to college. I made lots of money doing something that I loved, and found easy. I was just like you, doing all of my friends hair, cutting, colouring, the whole deal. Know I'm retired in my 40's looking back, at my life of working straight out of school. I was so lucky to have found my career at such an early age. I actually started to cut my brother's hair when I was 10. And all started when my mom asked me to cut her own hair in the back, after giving her self an perm. It was awesome! Anyways! I just love your family, and love watching you guys build, it's just awesome! Godbless you all! Happy building!

  18. Awesome! Great job! Just one tip that might help you; When staining wood, you should lightly sand after the first coat because the grain gets raised, then continue as usual. This will help with absorption and give you a smooth, even finish (food for thought)…… Shae, you're a sweetheart and Bree is a trip. Keep up the good work guys!

  19. Great stuff! I like the playfulness of your building style and the unexpected inserts – like hair cutting and gluten-free pizza. Seems with your large amount of subs that you could sell a training course on building rammed earth dwellings and students would come and pay you to help build. Reynolds in New Mexico does that with the Earthships. Why not the Daniel family in Benson, Arizona with your favorite materials and unique building designs? Once all the kids have their own buildings, what's next – a two-story rammed earth dog house, or goat house or…? Inquiring minds want to know. I got it. 'Just answered my own question. The next thing you could build is a bunkhouse for the visiting paying students. And then after that, of course, you'll need a schoolhouse, separate bathrooms and showers building, and a chow hall/cafeteria. Do it in the right order and the students will build it all and pay for all of the materials. You've got a gold mine there. Just keep up the good attitudes and loving family frolicking.

  20. you kids need to build ur Dad a sauna or something, a place to relax that he doesnt have to work for. hes the hardest working guy in television… im still blown away how fast he and Garin knocked out that very complicated roof. you guys are getting goood

  21. My daughter and I enjoy your videos/ Shae's bedroom.Β Β  We are ever curious about what you are going to use for the roof.Β  I bet it will be unique, perhaps a tin roof……maybe shakes.Β  We can't wait to see the kind of furniture Shae puts in her new bedroom.

  22. Been watching the stuccoing….I experimented with a few mix additives.
    One of those was very good stuff…WeldBond white glue.
    I was making the coating by the 5-gal bucket at a time, so, maybe about 2 to 4 Tablespoons of the WeldBond white glue, was added to the stucco mix's water, before adding some of the water…then add the rest, mixing well. It has made that batch more durable in our wettish climate [Pacific NW]. It's said to make the mix stronger, more durable, by somehow cross-linking molecules together? [IDK..something like that].
    Pozzolanic ash has a long history of making concrete better. It helps sequester more CO2 in the stucco [good], and makes concrete mixes more fire-resistant and durable, too [really a bonus]. I kinda gilded the lily by adding both Pozzolanic ash and WeldBond, to a few batches…and it's done nicely, too.
    Adding alkaline additives, of course, does better than the acidic additive one person suggested to us…that batch totally failed…like, went-powdery-failed.

  23. Everything free usually means flavor free…my wife and i will have to try it. Don’t care about gluten grain etc…we just want to lose weight together

  24. To help you out with your stucco, take a scrap piece of wood screw dow in the middle of it. Put your stucco on it, and go to your wall with it. This should SPEED UP your stuccoing.

  25. I was looking at your YouTube video and I came up with an idea for your next project. Try on your diving the next one up into 8 straight walls over lapping the corners like bricks and use rods also, instead of a circle.
    For the roof: After you get your 8 rafters in cut 8 – 2×6 – 22.5Β° / 46.5" on the long end. This will cut down on time and the cuts and wood wast.

  26. Wait. Why Roto till the floor b4 laying cement? I thought you just like smoothed the dirt over and laid cement over it.
