    I would like to offer my labor in exchange for a learning experience in cob building. I live near Kingston, Ontario, Canada. It gets very cold here in the winter, i would like to know how cob or other natural materials hold heat in these conditions. I am hoping to pitch cob building as an idea to my community as we will be taking on a large project of building houses in the spring. Would love to hear from yous

    I would like to offer my labor for on-the-job learning and experience in the area of natural cob building. I am particularly interested in projects going on in Southern California this Winter. Thank you.

    Our family is starting the journey towards more sustainable way of life and we have chosen cob as the medium for the house we want to build. We want to find the “cob community” in the north east of the usa. Would love to learn and help with someone’s build. thank you

  • Eric says:

    I’m a multimedia artist with a science background and experience in DIY. I want to build a community of cob/straw bale houses, but first, I need to learn and build my own little tiny cob home.

    I’d love to learn and work with someone who has a project/various experience with natural materials/off gridding electric/plumbing. Open to building anything that would also be buildable in the Northeast climate.

    Besides the manual labor, I make beautiful things for a living and will sculpt and invent interesting projects with you.
