Hello! My soon-to-be wife and I hope to build a cob house of our own one day. We are usually pretty low on cash. Otherwise, we'd definitely attend a workshop somewhere. Is there anyone out there who plans to build a cob house this summer? If so, we would love to come help out for any legnth of time in exchange for the learning experience. Thanks!
Adam

Hi Miles,
Thanks!
Well our wedding is going to be this July, and we plan to drive around the country for our honeymoon, looking around for some locations to start our new life of permaculture and natural building. If anybody could use help with their cob building, we'd consider traveling to any location to offer our hands and feet, and be willing to stay for as long as the help was welcome.

Thanks for the great resource, and great forum topics!

But which country are you in? That would narrow things down at least a bit...

Hmmmm good point! We're in the United States, but parts of Mexico and Canada aren't out of the question for us to travel to.
