A few days ago, I showed you how Cob, and Fast Cob! in particular, can be used to build a home without the need to go into debt. It's true: no loans or years of savings are needed to build naturally! For instance, a 400 sq. ft. one bedroom cottage would cost less than $4,000. You read that right - there are only 3 zeros in that pricetag. For the complete breakdown, just click here....
Climate Change is another reality and 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.

Until midnight on March 31, 2016, you can enjoy any of our 6 day intensive Learn-to-Build-from-the-Ground-UP Fast Cob! workshops for only $675...that's 25% off our regular rate.
Please also note that women and families are especially encouraged to apply. Fast Cob! is safe and fun for all ages, genders, and orientations. Last year, our ages ranged from 9 to 68, while previous years saw 4, 6, and 8 year olds having the time of their lives.
Here is some more feedback from past workshop participants:
"Wonderful, challenging, thought-provoking, exhausting, delicious, green, delightful in every way."
"My experience at the workshop was empowering and a wonderful learning experience in natural building and collaboration."
"Instruction was excellent. Dave knows and lives cob and this is evident in his responses to questions posed by workshop attendees."
"You always had thoughtful and insightful answers to any of my questions...I liked how the pace was determined by the participants."
“It was empowering! I really feel like in a short week like I can get going on building my own cob house!”
“Learning what we needed to know as we put it to practical use rather than spending a lot of time on theory was a useful approach for me.”
If you've been wanting to build your dream but don't want to go into debt or harm our planet any further, here's your chance to make that change!
