[Cob] Western Washington work party - July 29!yewberry at wavecable.com yewberry at wavecable.com
Fri Jul 13 16:22:03 PDT 2007
Where: Stanwood, Washington (halfway between Seattle and Bellingham) When: Sunday, July 29, from 9:00 a.m. until folks get sick of looking at me. :) What you should bring: Gloves, rubber boots or water shoes (if you have sensitive feet), a hat if it's hot and sunny, and copious enthusiasm. Extra shovels, levels, assorted tools are helpful but not required. What I'll provide: Lots of cold drinking water, a tasty vegetarian lunch (not vegan, sorry), tarps, a little bit of cob know-how, and a sense of humor. I don't plan to cater to dietary needs, so if in doubt, bring your own lunch. What you'll get out of it: The (very) basics of cob, the aforementioned free lunch, good company, the gratitude of a fellow natural builder who *will reciprocate in kind* with your own western Washington cob project(s). You'll also have the opportunity to peruse my collection of natural building books (of which I have many). What we'll be building: A 113 square foot round shed with a mixture of cordwood and cob. We'll install lots of "bottle ends" and lots of interesting windows. The shed will include a cob bench with storage niches underneath, several shelves in several sizes and of several materials, and other stuff I haven't thought of yet. I do ask that you RSVP, especially if you're planning to have lunch. I want to make sure we have enough food, tarps, water, and space for everyone. Feel free to bring the kids, but please remember this is a construction area with lots of nice, sharp tools lying around. Oh, and in case you think I'm a flake who knows nothing about cob, here's my résumé (you'll get to "meet" it if you're able to attend): http://home.wavecable.com/~yewberry/cobbers/back8-4-06.jpg http://home.wavecable.com/~yewberry/cobbers/front8-4-06.jpg Hope to see you here!
