We will be building in the town of Miacatlin for Hector and Igor Trejo. These brothers along with 2 friends took our Baja 2007 cob workshop and have since acquired land and are ready to start building.
The project is an 800 sq.ft. house for Hector, which will feature earthen floors, full kitchen, bathroom and 2 bedrooms. With this workshop you will gain many of the skills and confidence to begin planning and build your own cob home.
Wood is very expensive and prone to termites, so we will focus on using much recycled and local materials. We have local residents who will also be working alongside us, as we relearn these ancient earth-building skills. Also a great chance to practice your Spanish.
