Up We Go

Wall height is being added at the rate of one foot every eight to nine work days.

I try to limit a work day to a maximum of five hours per day. I call these half days. A typical day involves mixing six batches of cob, applying it to the walls, wall trimming, and perhaps two or three other miscellaneous tasks.

The walls above the foundation are approaching two feet of height.

On the outside of the building in some places the walls are almost waist high.

This cottage is growing! The next three days will be focused on the south facing side. Within a week there may be some window frames in place.
