Stormy cobbing it up

Email from Chris McClellan a few days ago:

“Last September after Sarah and I saw you, my youngest daughter Stormy and I went to Tennessee to teach a cob building class…

(Here) she is building a cob wall, pushing the lumps of sand-clay-straw into the cottage wall to make it monolithic.”
