why rising earth?

The title of this blog draws from my time as an apprentice at the Cob Cottage Company in costal Oregon. If you spend time with natural building folk, you'll eventually find yourself around a fire, sing silly songs about cob and natural building. Folks usually refer to these oftentimes improvised tunes as "cobsongs". I often sang..."There is a house in old coquille, they call the rising earth, it's been the work of many hands, and you know what that's worth..."

Greg's blog

Here are two recent shots from builder Greg Allen's blog, Cob & On. Greg has been a frequent building partner of mine since we met at the Cob Cottage Company, and he does inspired work. His blog contains a wealth of detailed information on natural building, and covers a few years of work. Check it out.
