People, we are getting into major CEB construction. Today we are building trusses for the roof. It will we an workshop addition to the greenhouse, featuring living roof, CEB walls, shallow insulated foundation, masonry stove, plus sauna running off the same stove. We’ll be digging more soil and pressing bricks the next few days.
This weekend is a great timeÂ people to come and help build. Work will include pressing bricks, and if the foundation is finished, we’ll be laying bricks.
Tell all your friends, bring them along. We need 10 or so people.
Nick Raaum is coming from LaCrosse, WI, as well, on Friday night.Â If you know anyone on the way from Lacrosse to Maysville, MO- who would like to come and get a ride, let us know. Nick is planning on returning on Tuesday, in his vegetable oil-fueled Mercedes.
As far as accommodations, Nick has an insulated army tent with stove, we have one hexayurt (no heat, though), and our cordwood hut as the heated spaces. The weather for the weekend looks relatively decent – 60s in the day, 40s at night. Bring a tent
