Included in each Adobe Building Week is a review of basic construction principles, techniques, safety and tool use.   YOU CAN Build a house

 

We figure about 5-7 hours of a spectrum of hands-on construction experience & instruction 6-7 or your 10 days.   We want to leave lots of opportunity for questions and rest as well as other activities and  connecting.   Learn by Doing

During each Intensive we plan a spectrum of experience such as

o      Adobe plasters & walls

o      Post & beam support systems & roofs

o      Decks & floors

o      Doors & windows

o      Frame construction—framing, sheathing, insulation

o      Electrical wiring

o      Trim & sealing

o      Rock work

 

We will focus on four projects

o      WindSong.  Adobe plaster, deck, roofs, rock work and finishing work on the marvelous cabin participants built last year. 

o      Bluebird.  Sheathing, electric, insulation, doors, windows, floor, rock work and adobe plaster on our GuestHouse Dorm.

o    Field House.  Finish work on the sweet 12x20 Cabin we renovated from an old shed during the 2008 Workshops. the ground up new adobe cabin  

o     Ramada.  Post & beam ramada with roof that will be the frame for our next adobe cabin.

 

Naturally, the basic rhythm of each day includes great meals, relaxation, hot tubs, hikes, singing, games, conversation & more.  A Wonderful Full-Spectrum of Activities & Alone Time

Land Values ~ Please Note

 

This is Woman’s Space, a woman-loving environment.  We are Lesbians celebrating, creating and expanding space and possibilities for all women and also for Lesbian culture and community.

 

We are a wild plant and animal sanctuary and we honor this lands and the plant, animal and mineral peoples who live here.

 

We value caring and respectful interaction as we honor and celebrate each other.  To make this a nourishing environment for us all, we each take full responsibility for ourselves, communicate directly and with caring, and interact without drama or aggression.

 

Just as we live in harmony with the land and creatures, we live in harmony with each other and without weapons or sadomasochism display or practice.  We interact with equal caring for the Earth on this marvelous wild plant and animal preserve.

 

We value a Simple Living Philosophy.

 

Our constructions is nontoxic and green.  Our air and water are wonderfully pure.  To maintain this preciously healthy and healing environment, we ask you to leave all scented products at home.  We gladly provide unscented and natural home care as well as body care products for your use.

 

We value foods that are organic, whole, local and unprocessed.  Our meals are vegan with dairy on the side and occasional meat meals available.  Tasty is high on our list too, smile.

 

We interact from our authentic Selves, wanting to be present to each other, so we ask you to leave alcohol and illegal drugs at home.  We are considering a designated cigarette area removed from buildings and activities.

 

We are sorry that we cannot usually accommodate children.  With advance arrangements we can sometimes accommodate an animal companion.

 

 

This incredible Land & Experience encourage us

 

into our biggest, wisest, most authentic Selves.

 

 

We love sharing this amazing space with other women & Lesbians.

 

We would love to share with You!
