Welcome to New Eridu

Welcome to New Eridu, a chronicle of an adventure into the American west and of learning to live a modern life in an ancient structure.   The intent is to build an earthen structure of locally sourced soils, and live sustainably on 10 acres of high desert terrain.   I am not a professional builder, have no particular skill in this area, but believe that it can be done.  I will be taking a trip in a few weeks to select the land, the site will be updated as things progress.
