Artisanal Structures LLC (www.artisanalstructures.com) builds using Natural Building methods and materials such as timber-framing, straw bale walls, earthen and lime plaster wall finishes, raw stone, hand forged steel, etc.
We are now building a timber framed house w straw bale covered by lime outside n earthen plaster inside. Also remodeling an 1860's farmhouse. If your students are interested in gaining this type of experience have them contact me.
The timber frame straw bale house is being built on 32 acres at Little Pond Arts Retreat (www.littlepond.org) where there are self catering accommodations.
Learning activities offered would include timber framing, Strawbale wall construction, lime and earthen plaster, and other building arts.
If you are experienced or interested in learning this fulfilling way of building send a brief description of why you want to build with us and what you have to offer.
