Me and my significant other are both just turning 20 and have been together for 2 years now and are wanting to begin building our first home. We have been doing a lot of research on using cob as a medium. We have land here in northeast Florida and are wondering who we can contact to begin planning our journey...?

Ashley,

You have this in the wrong place. I don't know why no one has posted to direct you to the building forums, but I can do that.

You have posted in permaculture design. Cob will be under building. Seems obvious, but if you are new, nothing is obvious! Good luck.

http://www.permies.com/forums/c/6/

that might be the link to the building forum. If not, it is just a matter of going to permies.com and looking for the forums, then for the building forums, then looking for cob. There may already be a thread that is talking about your question. It's always good to read what's there, then ask your question.

good luck

Thekla

It's no problem Ashley - I've made this post show up in the the cob forum, so no worries.

2+ years, any forward momentum on the project?
 
These are not the droids you are looking for. Perhaps I can interest you in a tiny ad?
