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.

Notchin' to it

Getting ready to put up some beams, working on a long scarf joint.  That's a lot of wood to remove!
