Jason and Vanessa come to visit!

and of course we talked them into working on the house! Actually, Jason came up for 4 days and worked the whole time, during what I hope was our last heat wave of the summer. It was 94 in the shade for about 2 days.

That didn't stop us from sculpting cob onto the walls. Here's Jason working on the interior wall between the bedrooms:

As soon as Vanessa was here, she jumped right in, starting with wetting down the wall where we were going to put a fresh batch:

And they got right into mixing and making cobs:

Melissa does make it fun, what with all the gossiping and laughing as they work:

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....
