o.u.r. ecovillage

in 2008, i took part in the 6 month natural building internship at o.u.r. ecovillage. a comprehensive immersion in natural building, timberframing and permaculture took place. with respect to natural building we focused on earthen construction with cob (monolithic adobe), light clay infill insulation (clay & plant-based fibre), and plastering (both in clay and lime). the timberframing aspect of the internship focused on the two foundation approaches to framing: the square rule & mapping. both were covered extensively. and finally, all interns had the opportunity to acquire a permaculture design course certification.
