Our most popular workshop teaches professionals and owner-builders the 
basics of cob construction in 7 to 9
intensive days.  Even complete novices leave the workshop confident in 
their ability to build the cob parts of a cabin,
studio, or greenhouse.  Learn how to locate and test soil, sand, and straw, 
create the right cob mix for any situation,
and build strong, durable, sculptural earthen walls.  Get practical 
experience with foundations, windows and doors,
arches and niches.  Lectures cover siting, passive solar design, drainage, 
heating, plumbing and electric, and natural
roofing and flooring.
