Bob’s House – Wombat Hollow
Mudbrick house built by Bob in the early 1980s, Bob was part of the early members of Moora Moora. For more details on Bob’s home visit his website – Mudsmith
Earth-walled house handcrafted with love by the author of “The Earth Garden Building Book: Design and build your own house” is in a location carefully chosen to be sheltered from likely bushfire directions and winter storms. It is a solar-efficient design, with winter temperatures without heating stabilising at about 14 degrees when it is freezing outside.
Spacious living area, 4 bedrooms (3 with sleeping platforms adding to the usable floor area), recently renovated kitchen, 1 bathroom. Wood fired heating, with nearby wattles providing more than enough firewood.
Hot water solar in summer, from the slow-combustion stove in winter. LP gas stove supplements the woodfired stove.
Solar electricity from panels on roof plus cluster minigrid. Satellite internet connection.
Half-share of fire bunker for extreme fire days (if defended, the house should survive an “ordinary” bushfire).
Well-established orchard, magnificent nut trees, area for chook run and vegies near house.
Part of the wonderful Wombat Hollow cluster.
