Hi Steve! I really would recommend taking a workshop or two as well as getting some of the leading books. I did a Cob Cottage workshop years ago and it was well worth the time and money. Also, there is a group near me here in SW PA who have been to workshops in NC (Kleiwerks?) and these folks have offered beginner courses through the local community college. I'm not sure if they're still together or not. If you're close to Pittsburgh I could find out for you. A word of caution, though: within the past couple of years PA has stripped control over building codes away from the local townships to the point where even conventional builders are grumbling. The last I heard, some "transgressions" were even considered felonious. Best of luck.
