The solution for the construction of the house is prepared from the calculation: 1 part clay, 1 part sawdust, 1 part manure, 1 part sand mixed in a dry form and then water is added.

On the flat ground we make a layout for the house and 12 wooden poles.
We dig in the bearing columns, having processed their edges with pitch which will protect them from rotting.
Along the upper contour we tie the frame of the future country house. From wooden beams we mount a roof.
The finished frame of the roof is tied with a rod, which will serve as the crate of our roof.
We cover the roof with a vapor barrier film on which the straw is then laid.
We build the walls of our country house: along the contour of the house we lay two rows of bricks, on which we then lay the laying of round wooden chocks and clay.

Colored wooden bottles can be built into the wooden walls for decoration, which create a beautiful lighting effect inside the house.
