Installing a Roof with Fast Cob!720-800
August 1, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - August 8, 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 a second roof in the shape of half-a-heart, which will be all metal. We’ll lay the roof beams on and tie them in so the winter storms don’t lift them off again. Fast Cob! will provide us with all the material we need to build the walls up to and over the beams.
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.
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.
