I'm interested in this also. My property is heavily wooded. I'm looking into a cordwood structure, for a canning and storage ect. I've been using books, the www and YouTube for ideas. From what I've researched on cordwood the shrinkage can be filled with more cob or whatever mix is being used. I was looking into cutting timber next month (Feb.2016) hmmm.

Funny I'm born and raised Northern Californian and just made my first property purchase! In Dent County Missouri! 9.64 acres bordering Mark Twain NF!
Was in Missouri last summer visiting family and camped out at Meramec State Park http://mostateparks.com/park/meramec-state-park and even with the humidity and the bugs (that kept aiming for my eyes) oh and the overnight "storm" really just ALOT of rain that sent a river through our tent and "flash" flooded the road out of the park... not that it bothered us we were happy to just stay put... even with all that it was the most amazing place, everyone we met was so friendly, big rigs even made room for us on the freeway! that doesn't happen here! I call California "the hurrry up and wait state" no joke!

Excited to be moving to beautiful Missouri!

I suggest Mendocino, California check it out, very progressive.. pot/hemp is legal there... I live just south of there and it's beautiful and close to the Redwood national forest
In Girl Scouts we washed our mess kits at the rivers edge using sand or gravel to wash our dishes clean rinsing with river water as we go and then heating them on the fire to kill anything/parasites from the river... I remember being told this is how the pioneers did it... Correct me if this sounds awful... We also had an ongoing joke "as clean as 3 rivers can get it" we would act out skits together and this one started out as a hobo siting next to a fire with a soup on, someone would walk up and ask for some soup & the hobo would pick up a bowl and hand it to them, they would ask "is this bowl clean?" Hobo would respond "as clean as 3 rivers can get it" & figuring that must be pretty clean would sit down to eat the soup, another would come up and repeat the process "as clean as 3 rivers can get it!" And again and again till all have been served soup at the end we would return our bowls and thank the hobo. Hobo would set the bowls on the ground and slapping the side of the leg would call "come on 3 rivers, come on" and our dog would come running over and lick them clean...

Using chard bits as a filler in the bags sounds like an interesting idea...

I'm so excited! I've been studying everything I can from earthbag construction to gardening for years now... And finally about to take the leap I see many others here from missouri, I'm looking at 10 acres in south east dent county and I just read on city-data that bunker (a near by town) has had high unusually high lead air pollution... What does that mean and should I reconsider the area?
