If anybody knows of any natural builders in the area that would like to take on an apprentice that will work hard in exchange for learning the craft of natural building please let me know. I am specifically interested in earthship, cob, adobe, strawbale, earthbag style buildings but would consider working on anything "Green". I am currently attending Alderleaf Wilderness College in Monroe Wa and have potentially 4 days a week i am free to work/learn from a skilled tradesman in the area. I just transitioned from the military 4 months ago and am ready to work hard to reach my goals. I have little building experience but what i lack in experience i make up for in passion and work ethic. If you or someone you know is looking for an apprentice please consider taking me on. I have been looking and waiting for years to do something like this and i wont let you down. I rarely get online to check my emails so if you would rather call that would be the best way to reach me. My number is 3605100102 and my name is Andrew Tuttle. Any replies would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know if you are still looking for someone, but I know Scott McBride here on permies has been experimenting with natural building at his CopperMoon Advanced Retreat Center. He's in your area, too. I don't know if he's looking for help right now, but I do know they've been working on quite a bit of natural building. Perhaps he'd be worth contacting?
