*Straw bale construction**

We are building a 12X12 straw bale cob hybrid tiny home that you will get to learn and work on during this course.  This home is our demonstration model.  Most of your hands on learning will take place on this building.

This course is taught by the members of Cob Collective Community.  Students will live on the land we are building at.    WE are excited to be able to train people from start to finish on building beautiful natural cob buildings.  Most work is hands on while some is demonstrated.  Visit us at www.facebook.com/cobcollective to view our progress from the ground up.
