a while ago i started building a small structure with help from whoever would give their time. It's progress has somewhat dwindled with me moving away from where it was being built so it is standing lonely, incomplete and needing some love.

I'm putting this listing up to gauge interest, as what i would like to do is gather a few friendly people together to really push the build over a few humps in the path to its completion.

ideally i would get some fast replies from some healthy energetic people who want to come and live in the forest and help create this space, four at least i would say. we would work a good four hour per day minimum on the house pushing forwards with an earth floor and cob rendering of tyre walls.

time not spent working could be filled with swimming in nearby lakes, cycling on old steel road bikes, walking in the countryside or whatever else.

accommodation would be basic, there is a geodesic dome that would sleep four comfortably but cosily, the structure we are working on is currently water tight and is therefore also a possibility for sleeping if more people are interested, and there is a wicked sick treehouse that sleeps one! hopefully get a picture of that one up soon.

pictures speak a thousand words so check the photos for description of project+ progress.
earth bermed, tyre retaining back wall, roundwood structure, reciprocal ceiling frame, sheepswool insulation, turf roof..

cooking would be communal as would cleaning, food would be provided for the most part. books, bikes yum yum. location is north lakes/carlisle ish, exact location i will email.

so, if your up for it send me an email, i dont know exactly when it would happen (hopefully lat aug/early sep) as it would depend on the availabilities of people who contact me, i realise its very short notice but better to try and fail than not try at all :)

so come on! send an email and lend a hand x

P.S. check out the photos! yip yip.
