Participate in one of the most comprehensive workshops available !
Learn the basic techniques of natural building as we construct a cabin-sized sauna building from the foundation to the roof. We will integrate a stone foundation, straw bale walls, round pole & dimensional framing, cob construction, window and door framing, a living roof, and more. Appropriate for beginner & experienced alike, with skills that can be applied to any new or existing home or structure.
We’ll also use traditional woodworking skills to cut and raise a timber-framed pavilion ~ which may go home with one of our participants!
This fourteen-day building intensive will offer a complete introduction to all the skills you’ll need to complete a cob cottage from the foundation to the roof, and the carpentry skills needed for a wide range of natural building projects. We will mix cob by both feet-power and tractor, frame a round-pole roof, and cut a traditional timber frame from square timbers. The workshop will also cover, both hands-on and in classroom sessions, foundation options, how to install windows and doors, and how to install plumbing and electrical wiring in the cob, all at this start-to-finish construction workshop.
