Thankfully the snow is gone and Spring has arrived...which means it's time to start thinking about what you're going to build in 2019!
I know that Anicca and I will continue to enhance our beautiful 900 sq.ft. Cob Home, but we'll also be adding another cob wood shed or two...this year's winter taught me that you just can't have too much firewood on hand.
One wood shed will have a luscious south-facing curve with a covered bench and an enclave for our delicious nectarine tree.
If we built it ourselves, it's a week-long project at 200 sq.ft. That's start to finish.
But we're still planning on sharing the joy of building with Fast Cob!...which means it's time to announce our 2019 line-up of Fast Cob! Natural Building Workshops:
Last year, John made the Focusing-on-Finishing Workshop his introduction to Fast Cob! Later in the Summer, he took an All-the-Basics course and let me know that the Finishing Workshop was a huge help...it made learning the Basics even easier and faster for him. As a professional carpenter, he knows his way around building sites, and after only his second ever workshop, he declared that Fast Cob! is as fast as woodframe construction.
If you want to get a building up and complete this year, consider taking the May and July Workshops. You'll have time to build and roof up to a 200 sq.ft. building with ease and on your own - this same year! And it'll give you the tools and experience to put up your dream structure in one year next year.
All of our Workshops have limited space; we limit the numbers to ensure that your learning experience is maximized. If you want to come, have fun, and learn everything you need to know to build on your own, visit our Workshops page and fill in the application at the bottom. It's quick, easy, and pain-free, just like our Workshops!
