One Day. Low-cost foundations and earth-sheltering methods used at the Earthwood house are emphasized, accenting surface bonded wall construction and plank-and-beam roofing. The five elements that affect load calculations are discussed. Alternative foundations, drainage and waterproofing, insulation, structural considerations and the masonry stove are all covered. An explanatory tour of the Earthwood house is included, as well as a step-by-step slide presentation documenting the construction of Earthwood from floating slab foundation to earth roof. Textbook: Earth-Sheltered Houses, provided. (One textbook for each individual or “couple,” defined as two people on the same registration.) This is a very full day, consisting of mostly classroom instruction. Like all of our workshops, sessions are punctuated by Jaki’s excellent coffee and tea breaks.
