Natural Building Intensive (sauna build) with Michael G. Smith, Avani Leitz, and Blair Phillips
July 17, 2023 ∞ 8:00 am - July 29, 2023 ∞ 5:00 pmtiered pricing and payment plans
In this two-week course, get your hands muddy and leave with the skills to build a small structure from the ground up. We will be building the foundation for a sauna, then adding earthen walls and a round-pole roof structure for a living roof.
Daily hands-on building sessions will be supplemented with lectures on the theoretical background you need to design and build effective natural structures, including a thorough grounding in both the structural and thermal properties of different natural materials and the fundamentals of passive solar design.
Camping is included and all meals are prepared for you with food grown on site or locally sourced with your optimal health in mind.
