About the Facilitator
In 2007, Mahiitosh left the corporate world and embarked on a spiritual journey leading to a life of simplicity. Moving to Puerto Princesa, he helped to found Bahay Kalipay and Maia Earth Village, focusing his new found energies on sustainable building, particularly the many wonders of mudhousing processes. After typhoon Yolanda struck the Philippines in 2013, he moved to Leyte to establish earth building styles for rehabilitating disaster-struck communities. As part of a GENOA team, he was sent to Kathmandu, Nepal after the 2014 earthquake to conduct similar rebuilding work there. He has since facilitated projects in the Waldorf School in Laguna, ecobrick building projects in the Cordilleras, and numerous work sites in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. When he is not travelling the Philippines and Asia, he can be found in Maia Earth Village conducting trainings for those founding ecovillages and sustainable communities interested in his cob building techniques.
It could be a hut, a cluster to start a community, a house that can withstand catastrophe, a house that gleams in the night - a mud house is a comfortable home.
The properties of a mudhouse is that it is porous in nature, which means when the weather is cold outside the temperature is warm inside and when the weather is warm outside the temperature is cool inside.
Porous (of a rock or other material) having minute spaces or holes through which liquid or air may pass.
Its beauty depends on one's creativity. Properly cared for, stands the test of time. Daila Farms is now ready to share the technology of Mud House with master Natural Home Builder - Mahiitosh “Maui” Eguia.
