Continuing process

As we've moved to soaking the clay in small containers, Melissa spends time fishing out the organics - weeds, bark, roots, etc - so they don't end up in the walls, and tempt bugs who might find them nutritious


Everyday I should spend time checking the plumb of the walls, which I do with some regularity,


and when I find it off, I shave off the leaning bits with my 'mud saw' made from an old band-saw blade. I really like how the walls look after shaving; the surface, not just the plumb line.

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....
