Doing the Cob Thing!

In between cutting logs for the house, I'm making batches of cob to create a bench under the oven.

Here's my first batch, with some concrete pavers to hold back possible moisture and such.

Next day, one more batch:

and then, two days later, two more batches, with big 14" tiles on either side of the oven so I can put hot bread down somewhere while baking.

after this totally dries, I'll do a plaster layer that will smooth everything out.

Starting anti-fire prep

Well, we never really stop.  But, took a picture of today's raking below the yurt.  Every year I work to get a bit wider swath cleared....
