We have a 2 acre site within the city limits of Goshen, IN, currently occupied by my straw bale duplex, the superinsulated duplex, and the original house on the site, a mid-1980’s manufactured house. A new cob house is currently under construction.
The long term plan is to develop a central plaza which will have spaces such as a gazebo, fire circle, patio, and seating areas. The front porches of each house will face toward the plaza, making it the focus of the community. The houses will be cohesive in style, yet each being distinctly different. Currently there are one owner occupied unit and 4 rental units. In the longer term I would like to have a majority of owner occupied units.
A new hybrid cob cottage on the South-East corner of the site by Steury Ave.
