The rustic original feature: the tiny stairs up to the next room (often featured in old homes that were partly dug out of a big rock).
Once again my mind returns to the differences there can be between natural building and conventional construction. Is it the method itself? Its slow and intimate, with each cob worked into the wall by hand, no barriers between clay and skin, a free flow of energy from body to earth. Maybe its the relaxed atmosphere of the work site, no loud machinery, just conversation and laughter… or sometimes no voices at all, just the birds and the bugs and the wind.
