Finishing and Fast Cob!

720-800

August 15, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - August 22, 2015 @ 11:00 am Contact

This workshop will give you all that you need to go off and finish your own natural building.  We’ll use Fast Cob! to learn how to build both thick (exterior) and thin (interior) walls and we’ll also learn how to mix and use a gorgeous natural plaster.

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.

We’ll also have a block and tackle available to lift pallets of cob to the 2nd floor, so you’ll see how to easily lift without electricity or expensive tools.
Until midnight on March 31, 2015, you can enjoy any of our 6 day intensive Learn-to-Build-from-the-Ground-UP Fast Cob! workshops for only $650…that’s a $150 discount, or almost 20% off our regular rate.  This Early Bird Special must be paid in full before April 15th, 2015.
