Asha_IsMore opportunities to learn.. yay!

So, I took a cob workshop a couple weeks ago. I was excited I’d be able to keep volunteering on the site until the build season was over, then a little off the grid farm I camped at in May got a hold of me that they’re going to start building a cob cottage soon, and the little, cordwood cabin I stayed at will be available if I want to come back. 20 months ago


Just the most beautiful homes ever, I want to build my own and live in it, either in Georgia pr Scotland. Perhaps as part of the chidren’s centre? 2 years ago

The rubble trench foundation is currently being filled. After that, the stone stem wall… then the cob. I just put out a post on growfood.org (our Farm’s name is Hidden Moon) looking for volunteers to help us this summer. I hope we are able to complete it by Thanksgiving 2010. 4 years ago

it’s called earthbag building, and I found someone to get the special tube sandbags from cheap. This method is a little easier(at least for the first few layers) than cob. both are labor intensive, but you just can’t find a house like this anywhere else, plus, its pretty much free 4 years ago
