 It's affordable, (well it doesn't cost a million dollars like a house in Vancouver ;) )super green and environmentally friendly. It's something I want to learn and I think alot more people should too. It's a very valuable skill here in Mexico but the great thing is you don't have to go to college to get a degree for it or take out huge student loans..."esta es la vida". This is the life!!  Working hard, but at the end of the day you can really see your accomplishments and you haven't hurt the environment. Instead you've built a home and you've done it sustainably.
