Fast Cob! (vs. conventional)
- Zero emissions: we don't use machines! (conventional building uses loud, dangerous machines that emit carbons and toxics both on-site and off)
- No plastics or anything else that won't melt back into the earth when the building is abandoned (instead of multiple layers of plastic, glued chipboard, gyproc, toxic paints, etc.);
- Fast Cob! acts as a thermal mass: it can be passively heated by the sun, and wood stoves can be placed against the walls! When the heat source stops, the walls then release heat maintaining a comfortable temperature. In the summer heat, it naturally cools;
- As long as a roof is maintained, Fast Cob! buildings will last centuries (vs. decades at most for particle board buildings).
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!
