I just moved to the Buffalo River area (Marble Falls, AR to be exact) and my wife and I are very interested in building an earthen home (timber frame/cob/strawbale hybrid). I'm new to this idea of permaculture, but many aspects of it really appeal to me.

It would be great to meet some folks who are also interested in earthen housing, perhaps even see an example for myself of how cob works in this area. If you're in the Jasper area, hit me up! I'd love to chat with you sometime.

Bryan,
I would be interested in your ideas. I have always wanted to do a cob house, or a strawbale.
You picked a lovely area! Email me anytime.

I dont know how the soil is around that area, but i do know that around harrison we have tons of rocks.
There are several ways around the rocks ( and boulders)
One would be raised beds. Greenhouses too.

I have a long list of things I can do.
Let me know. It would be nice to chat with a few of us close by with similar interests.
Take care.

I forgot to mention about the locals.
If you do move here, be sure what you have IS locked up.
Lately there seems to be more problem of them taking angthing, including food and cattle. And they do know how to hunt.
That is one concern for me.
If the economy gets worse, I may consider moving.
It happens all around the ozark area. North and south of it too.
It may look pretty, but there are many things to consider.
How will you be able to protect your property, especially when they are skilled hunters?
We have had a few people come on to our land. Some unsavory looking characters. Good thing we have dogs!
In one little town north of harrison, the sheriff was arrested for taking guns and selling them. Great.
That makes me a bit nervous.
So, I may be looking for somewhere else soon.

Bryan, I am in Jasper and would like to meet up sometime. I am just getting started on my project as well. Hit me up.
