Beautiful roof, and cobbing upstairs

The complicated curves of our wooden roof have finally been completed. Now we wait for the rain to stop so we can add an insulating layer of cob leichtlehm - "light-clay" onto the roof. The outside walls downstairs have had a first protective layer of plaster added (lime/cob mix - lime naturally hardens when rained on), burnished with feta lids to give the smooth finish. We're now having to throw cob balls up the stairs...

so we hope to be ready to move in soon - and that means the last few months to invest in our scheme before we open for business, see below!

AND the cobhouse was on TV recently, Free Spirit on SABC3 on September 16th. More details to follow. Remember: more public workshops coming up September 30th, October 28th, November 25th, 9am to 1pm in Muizenberg!
