Description:
Join us at our neighborhood location in beautiful Bandon by the Sea for the most comprehensive cob course available in North America.  This month we will teach a 9 day intensive in beautiful Bandon-By-The Sea Oregon, and including some time at our Cob complex in Coquille.  We will not only cover Complete Cob, but we will also experience remodeling an existing stick frame construction with light straw clay insulation and demo a pallet wall with clay straw infill!  In this expanded version of our most popular program ever, we’ll take the ground out from under your feet and turn it into a versatile medium to sculpt a whole house. You will learn construction of Cob walls, arches for doors and windows, and artistic details and some finish work too. We will discuss siting/design,  rubble trench foundations, roofing options, passive solar, plasters, earthen floors and more.   And you’ll leave confident enough to build a cob building of your own or to naturally renovate an existing conventional building! Space is limited  to allow personalized hands on instruction. Please arrive on July 12th between 3pm and 5pm.
