2008 Workshop

The workshops were held in Seaside on the grounds of the Chartwell School with Jay Tulley acting as host. The 16ft X 24ft structure was a permitted load bearing straw bale building with Earth Plaster. The foundation has a concrete footing and will have an earthen floor. The building will be used as an outdoor classroom by the school and the students are assisting in finishing the building.
