Picked up an $0.89 essential tool for Prickly pear plaster day. Even if the pads are "spineless" there are still glochids that will get ya. I'll have a pear of tweezers on hand Tuesday. Pre-register at naturalbuildingworks.com Linking bio. #Naturalbuildingworks #Bhaktibathouse
I've known about this place for a long time but never stopped to look until passing by this afternoon. It looks like a group of Adobe buildings with a clay plaster exterior. Probably stabalized somehow. The plaster is showing a lot of wear in spots and cracks throughout. A nice little education for me. Anyone know this building's story? #adobebuilding #Naturalbuildingworks
Picked up a stash of Prickly Pear pads that had fallen after the freeze a couple weeks ago. This should be enough and then some for Tuesday's Volunteer & Learn session at Harmony and Health. Register at naturalbuildingworks.com link in bio. #Naturalbuildingworks #plaster
Had a great field trip to see and work a little bit on the #Superadobe featured on the #DIYNetwork . Had enough time to fill one bag and compare cone shapes with Jake @abra_cadabra_jeebus_christo What a great home designed by @jessicavanwoerkom and the owner and building crew are super cool people too. #Naturalbuildingworks
Had a great day working on the #Bhaktibathouse ...after a quick footing pour we put up some #cobbnbottle while doing some plumbing for the shower. This was the first time this group did any cobb and only after one session they are ready to finish the walls with out me. Next Volunteer and Learn opportunity is Tuesday January 22nd.

I'm planning workshops around that with a zen garden and rammed earth wall. Stay tuned for dates. Special Thanks to Jake @abra_cadabra_jeebus_christo for the hook up. #mulchbros mulch for life.
