After Colloquium Brown Coat Work Party

The Robinson’s have done it folks…they have received a thumbs up for a mortgage!!!! Big deal right? Well, it is in the world of Natural Building. That’s right, this is a load-bearing cob and light-clay infill house that has been approved for a mortgage!!!!

The catch: they need to have it DONE. Yup, all done. What’s missing you ask? The exterior plaster.

So, for all you lovely natural building enthusiast that are attending the 2011 Natural Building Colloquium at OUR this May, why not stay a few extra days out on our lovely island and help this family of 7 (yup, 5 little ones) get the brown coat up on the outside of their house.

And, for all you lovely natural building enthusiast that are not attending the colloquium, but are interested in trying your hands out plastering, or just want to help out for any ole reason, come on over too!

Oh, and if anyone would like to help Kim with the cooking, she could use a hand feeding all the hungry mouths as well.

Camping on site, or down the road (at Mossy Banks) is available. Meals will also be provided. And, but of course, a bon fire if it isn’t pouring at night!

Be a part of this awesome family’s journey and help them secure this mortgage for a natural building!! This will help our movement so much, making natural building that much more accessible for people who would build with these materials if only they could find financing. Well, here it is!!!

This event is scheduled for two days, yet there is an option for a few people to stay on for a few extra days if they wish.

Many thanks and hope to see you out there!

Blessings

ADVENTURES OF THE CANADIAN FAMILY ROBINSON » Sustainable Building

Spencer showed up this past Sunday to help mix up a batch of cob with the bobcat and add to the Tire/ Earth / Wood Table and bench that we are building. We were looking for a project to test our sand/clay and straw mix, so we decided to build a picnic bench and earthen floor under the greenhouse cover. We are testing the earth materials that we have been gathering to build our house in the spring.
