SunDog Cob Building Workshop

This looks like an amazing cob building workshop. Love the little building they’ve built.

“The SunDog nine day workshop is designed to teach ordinary people the skills to build their own cob cottages, from the foundation to the roof. Our projects are small, most are under 200 square feet, and geared towards attaining a high level of completion in a short amount of time.”

Making Adobe Bricks the Old Fashion Way

Making adobe bricks is hard work but so simple almost anyone with a strong back can do it with this age old low tech approach.

“It is (was) June in the southwestern USA and as is typical it is hot and very dry-what better time to make adobe bricks because they also like it hot and dry.I had a pile of adobe dirt that I wanted to get rid of and knew I would need these bricks for a future project.”
