Natural Building, Day 2

Another glorious day was ahead of us, and everyone was ready to get down to business. With so many people working in a small space, Wayne decided to make use of the many hands, so a cob oven was added to the agenda. Roof support beam is set, bamboo lath is complete, oven form is ready, and tomorrow we start applying the cob.

  1. I miss coming to visit and see how things are progressing…I’m still amazed at all that’s happened at Koinonia since I’ve known of it…So beautiful to see! I’m hoping if our farm in GA sells before next Fall that we’ll make it back there for the “Family Reunion”

    Awesome!
