This is an already some months old video of when I started building my adobe house with sandbags filled with mud containing natural red clay which was found on the same site. After a period of constant rain that did not let the walls dry and since I did not make buttresses and I built it fast a wall fell and due to the built in barbwire it pushed down 40% of the whole construction. I was too inexperienced and rushed. Thanks God that nothing serious happened since one of those sacs could easily kill and they fell close to one of my workers, who fortunately had good reflexes. I then slowed down, rebuilt it alone with one half time worker. I added nice room divisions. Rain activity fell in the following months and the growing walls dried nicely. Now it is looking quite impressive, it has a reciprocal roof and seems like a fortress. I might add a follow up video so that you see the progression. Best ! Jrv
