Hi all- an update from my last post. I just participated in the CruzinCobGlobal workshop where we built a cob oven and benches in Soquel with Claudine Desiree, it was an awesome experience- life altering. I absolutely loved it. While Im going to do more of her workshops in the future, I want to get cob certified with her foundation to roof build, but in the mean time, Im looking for a local community in Los Angeles or SoCal. Any natural build workshops here? Thank you!
Hello, looking to see if there is any courses near New Hampshire for cobb house building. Very interested in cobb and learning more about it. Thanks Heather
I’m interested in learning how to build cobb structures. Family of five looking to buy land and begin building with COB in the next year or two. please email email@example.com. Thanks!
I’m interested in learning how to build cobb structures from someone with experience, and will offer my labor in exchange for some instruction while building
Hello, I am planning to build a Cobb house this spring as soon as I can get started. I am interested in work exchange and work party. I have a spot to build but I do not have a car. I am getting help from a couple of friends also.
I live in Warren, New Hampshire
I have some experience with cob building from taking a class in Tennessee a few years ago. It is not clear what you envision regarding the help that you want. For example, where would one stay while helping you? I live in Vermont about an hour north of you so it would be an easy commute.
Hi Lesli, I am also interested. I am very close to you. I live in New Hampshire too. I would be willing to help out with a work/exchange party. I have no experience but have been looking into cobb building myself. If your able to set up a person with experience to build cobb I would be willing to come and help out. Message me and we can keep in touch. Heather
Hey there- Im interested in learning to build with cob, I’d like to exchange my time for education in the craft. I feel a calling to this work, a continual tugging on both my body and spirit. As a visual artist I’ve been detached from the physical side of expression for too long. Building has always been an interest since early childhood. I have some light construction experience. I’m a hard worker and unique thinker, I’m creative, honest and strong. Please contact me if there’s an opportunity in California. I’m in Los Angeles but I’m willing to travel a few hours to participate. Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, I am a woman interested in sustainable living and natural building. I will offer labor, a strong work ethic, and a positive attitude in exchange for hands-on experience and education. I live in Santa Cruz, CA and am willing to drive up to 6 hours, give or take, to participate in building parties. Please reach out anytime you need help.
I’m interested in working or volunteering on a natural building project. I have no natural building experience but i have a little bit of carpentry experience. I’m based in Miami but willing to travel (US or Canada).
Also side note if anyone knows of any good college natural building programs lmk
I am building as soon as I can start in Warren, New Hampshire. I have no experience either. carpentry would be helpful as I do not have much experience with that beyond whittling
I am going to be traveling around the western US this spring/summer (2021) and I am very interested in seeing how cob buildings are built. Please send me an email at email@example.com if you have an opportunity for me. I am very hard working, I am a musician, I enjoy good food, movies and world travel.
I’m looking at properties in Connecticut and am hoping to start building with COB in the next year or two. Full disclosure, I have no experience, this will be a learning project for everyone. If you would like to be notified when we have a start date, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
I’m considering moving back to the west coast. Most likely Oregon or Washington. I’d love to build a cob house. But I’m wondering if that sort of thing can be facilitated from a distance? We are still on the east coast and would need to have the house built and ready by the time we arrive. Is that unusual? I realize most owners want to be involved in the building process. But for us, it’s more important to have a place to crash when we get there. Or should I just rent and RV or try camping? How are these types of things usually handled?
I would never hire someone from such a distance to build something that you cannot supervise! I have lived in Oregon though I am now in Vermont and if you don’t know the territory or have not been there for quite a while in that state you could be in for a big surprise.
I am interested in helping to build a cod house, I am about to graduate college at HSU but classes are online now and I am seeking a more connected way of education and I would to apply it to my real life and I start to make a life for myself.
