Fast Cob! and more…2-for-1 Last Minute Special!

720-800

May 9, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - May 16, 2015 @ 11:00 am Contact

This workshop will give you all that you need to go off and build your own…without exhausting yourself or spending years doing it.

Fast Cob! is a revolutionary technique that encourages nature to do the work for us.  It is 10x faster to mix than “traditional” west coast cob, and we can build walls up to 30x faster.

Best of all, you’ll be able to cob all day and still be fresh for the next.

During the workshop, you’ll have 30 different sessions scheduled for your intensive learning.  We’ll go over design basics, foundations, install windows and doors, see how electrical and plumbing are easily integrated into cob, and finish with a natural plaster.  And not only will we learn Fast Cob!, we’ll learn Super-Fast Cob!, too!

This workshop will also have the opportunity to install 2×6 tongue and groove flooring as well as build narrow interior walls…which is made possible by Fast Cob!

We’ll also be using a block and tackle to lift pallets of cob to the 2nd floor, so you’ll see how to easily lift without electricity or expensive tools.

This workshop will be held under the big top: a giant tarp that will keep us dry in all conditions

Last Minute Special: 2 can attend for the price of 1!
