Rainwater Greenhouse - Update

Getting cobby!

the lovely Amit Chertoff, joins in for a day, just before heading back to Israel

Ethan is at home in the garden

Prepping bottles for more cob

reclaimed tile, thrift store grout, and tumbled broken bottle chips
create the potting surface

workshop participants get dirty with light straw clay

and base coat plasters

even old time friend, Max Edelson, stops by to get muddy for the afternoon

Lawrence is a pro at this rate, and helps teach the mixing techniques

Oiling the cut-face of the urbanite wall makes it really beautiful!

A little bit of bamboo conceals a less than perfect plaster detail

The main entrance begs you to enter

Chinking at all possible points of infiltration

    What type of oil did you use on the cut urbanite? It looks beautiful.
