    He never said a thing about the cobb construction, rammed earth, or packed tire construction... Yet.








    PS... I have played with all of them at one time or another.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    Doesn't mean I haven't thought about it. I've been saving a bunch of friends blue beer bottles(I don't drink) for putting in the chinking like the cob folks do...


    LOL, Stressman.

    Maybe a few stones added in for accents? I've been toying with the idea of a roundwood timberframe using some massive(30" butt) pines I've seen. Ok, they're massive for my area... grown in the open so they taper a lot, have a lot of limbs(character), only have a 20-30' usuable section before they split, etc. Infill with strawbale, lime plaster, living roof... just an idea, I'm still building the main house as a log home.

    Good to see you back Kola!

    I am planning on my shed being built using the slipform stone building process and using logs for the rafters and strawbale gables.
