In this one-day introduction, we will be mixing and building with cob, as well as discussing straw-based building techniques. Look forward to morning and afternoon hands-on work, with a discussion/presentation after lunch. The day will conclude with a pizza dinner, using our cob oven!

We will cover the basics:

  • mixing and applying cob
  • mixing and applying natural clay-based plasters
  • strawbale vs. cob concepts
  • basic foundation ideas
  • touring a permitted strawbale house

We will enjoy three home-cooked meals, focusing on healthy and real foods (and local, where possible!). Dinner will be a pizza night at our cob oven!

There are composting toilets, hot showers, and a pond to swim in. Drinking water is readily available, as is electricity. We are located in Snow Camp, NC ; the closest town is Saxapahaw, which is about 10 minutes away, and has wifi, a coffee shop, a bar, and a general store.
