At the moment, provisional dates for March & April are:
24th & 25th March – Groundwork (digging and flattening earth)
(break for Ecuador trip)
21st & 22nd April – Digging drainage ditches
28th & 29th April – Retaining wall using rammed tyres
The weather should be pretty excellent by April. Going into May and onwards, the work will contiue to be most weekends pushing to finish the groundwork and start on foundations by the end of May. I’ll update activities and dates as we go
As I arrange new dates, I will send out newsletters with progress on the build and plans for more work days. These will include anything from digging foundations and ramming earth tyres to (eventually!) planting the living roof and plastering the straw bale walls. If you sign up, I will be able to send updates for when the weather is good and I can get some work done! I can offer some camping space for people and also tea, cake and some homebrew for the well-earnt evenings. Come along, learn some new skills and get involved in the community of a eco-build!
