  1. Hi, wow, we live on the Sunshine Coast of BC, or shall I say the wet coast. We researched extensively on building with cob. Spoke with numerous folks, including long dicussions with Anne and Gord Baird on Vancouver Island. Our plan was to envelope a 1951 Pan-Abode which we reconstructed last spring. As summer approached and the rains continued into late July, it became apparent that cob was not the answer. We have since finished that house and are now starting the plan for the next home on the same property. I have been perusing the internet to gather info on “earthbag” building when I came accross your post. Where abouts in BC are you located and have you found the wet to be a challenge other than in the plaster? We are on a bit of a vacation currently on Quadra Island and would love to be able to see and or pitch in for a day on your build. We welcome any suggestions you may have. Thanks, and congratulations for your contribution to “less is more”.
    Raven and Bobbi
