Re: Working site - Yay! Mud bricks! I built a whole house…

…house out of mud bricks in Australia in the 1980s -- and I mde every brick by hand on site too. It looked similar to your picture, Baha, only I was on the side of a hill.

Happy days. Bl**dy heavy work too. I must have been mad!

I meant to document it photographically, but:

  1. After or even during a day's work on with mud bricks, I simply didn't have the energy
  2. Halfway through the job I had to sell my dual Oympus OM1 plus lenses, etc., outfit to finance the septic tank and general drainage.

Fond(?) memories!

Cheers, geoff

It must be really tough experience but those the one made us "man of steel"

Too bad you've to sell your lenses back then, I bet those would mount nicely on your m4/3 gears.
