Climate Change is more than a reality; it isn't going to stop unless we change our civilized ways...and soon! Today, building is a huge source of carbon emissions, both in the manufacture of homes and offices as well as the heating and cooling of them. Fast Cob! compares to conventional building practices in terms of speed, but there's no comparison when it comes to carbon-emissions, toxics creation, after-life disposal, heating/cooling, and length of service life. And we now have 2 ways for you to save on our workshops (see below).
Check it out:
Fast Cob! (vs. conventional)
We have two more opportunities coming up to learn our Fast Cob! technique...which is not only carbon-free, it's faster and easier than any other Natural Building technique.
August 9-16 and August 23-30.
These will be our 14th and 15th workshops, and they are filling up fast!
The first workshop still has room for 1 more family to take advantage of our Special 2-for-1 Offer.
And now for both workshops, you can take 20% off our regular price if you travel carbon-free to the workshop on Lasqueti Island. That could be by bicycle, or regularly scheduled bus or train. If you're travelling less than 100 km (Vancouver Island or Vancouver) and are willing to car-pool, you can take 10% off our regular workshop price.
We not only teach how to build carbon-free, we'll pay you to travel carbon-free!
Together, we can survive Climate Change...but let's not delay any longer!
Making Cob even Faster!
Jackson and I experimented with a low, wide wall and the staircase by creating a new method of mixing in place. It combined the pit mixing and pitchfork methods of the past in Wales and it worked wonderfully! Now we not only do Fast Cob!, we do Super Fast Cob!

We'll try to keep you updated on all the latest activity here at Lasqueti's Cob Village...
