This week Greg and I worked on the addition to Danielle’s cottage at Circle Acres. She built a unique two-story cob cottage two years ago after taking our first workshop. Her building was truly tiny, with an interior space of 8’x8′ on each level.

Here is a photo of Greg laying the earthen sub-floor at the back door threshold. They’ve added a substantial but modest living room, and a cozy little kitchen. The addition is built with a hefty pine frame and strawbale and light straw clay infill. You can read all about the construction of the cottage at Earthen Acres.
