Natural Building and Earthen Plasters
June 5, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmUSD60
We love to build with earth at Ampersand! We have strawbale cottages covered with local earth plasters. We have a hybrid home made with rammed earth, strawbale, as well as post and beam with a framed attached greenhouse. Earthen building techniques are essential to every structure we have crafted at our site. We will tour these buildings and review how they were built from the ground up. See how we have used adobe bricks, cob, earthbags, earthen relief sculptures and finish plasters.
