Thanks for taking the time to share all of this information!  Just curious if you remain as happy with this saw and the hedge trimmer 1 year later?
Many thanks.

Awesome! As I just said in another post, I don't get to permies as often as I'd like, but I've been here enough to know this is great for all of us! Your bone sauce videos were so helpful to us. "Mother Tree" is perfect.

Congratulations!

Hi everyone,

I never make it over to premies as often as I'd like, but I'm always glad when I do. Thanks for sharing all this great information.

I'm curious what breeds of egg-layers you've had success with the fermented feeds and with the rabbit poo.

Many thanks,
Julie

Holistic Management by Allan Savory with Jody Butterfield. You can search for Allan's posts here on premies.com to get an idea of what he's about. I think understanding his work is important, no matter what your environment, but especially if you're in a brittle environment.
Best wishes!

Thanks for all the great info, Rob! Just curious; has anyone ever done any type of "life cycle analysis" to compare various building methods? I'd love to know how cordwood with the Portland cement mortar compares to other building methods using regionally sourced materials. Even knowing of an example somewhere else would proved insight on how we might do such an analysis here. Thanks! -J

Thank you. I think I need to convince my kids they want a cordwood playhouse so that we can test how the local Eastern Redcedar performs.

Would those with experience touch on mortar options? I think Rob Roy did a cordwood project with Ianto Evans where cob was used as mortar vice a cement mortar. How has that project held up/how does cob compare to a cement mortar?

Many thanks,

Oklahoma considers Eastern Redcedar an "invasive" species, and I was wondering if using it for cordwood building would be one way to turn that problem into a profit. A lot of my books are in storage right now, but as I recall, Redcedar was not on the list of Rob Roy's preferred woods. However, as you noted it is rot resistant, and, I'm wondering if it would be a suitable local resource in Oklahoma. Curious if anyone has used it. I'd "start small and chunk" and probably build a kids' playhouse or the face on a dugout root cellar first, but if folks have had success with it, I'd would consider it for a permanent dwelling also.

Thanks!

Is anyone aware of any cordwood buildings made with Eastern Redcedar? If so, how have they performed relative to other types of wood?
