Supervisors galore

Many hands make light work and many supervisors make correct work?.. Some people require constant supervision however… ha ha.

 

Metal buckets far superior to plastic ones. Stronger handles.Sweat camp1 300x225 Workshop album..

Sweat camp hey..

Making as if this a holiday camp? Great guys with a great work ethic. They are planning a community of homes in Sarasota Florida and have already talked to the building department and have their “blessing” to build earthbag buildings. Fantastic. Good luck and see yawl again soon..

Jesse is another determined builder. He is looking at property to purchase and has started talking to the building  dept. in the Florida Panhandle.
We need more Marines on the job hey. Bring em over Jesse …. 🙂

We plan to form a group of eager committed people to help one another. Most of us have something unique to offer and the leverage of group work is so huge it cannot be ignored.

 Jesse soon got into it. Like a duck to water.

    Mike, thanks for all of the priceless information and training. I had a great time and am greatly encouraged to push on in my own earthbag project.

    Your welcome. It was nice to share knowledge and experiences hey. Like you said, if about 5 or 6 people with a common goal of building got together, the project would get ahead in leaps and bounds. It’s what we need to do? Help one another and share. It’s a win/win situation with so many benefits.

    Thanks Mike, I learned a lot about our common goal to build using earthbags. We were there for such a short time and accomplished a great deal of work. I can’t wait to come back and eventually get going on my own home. See you soon.

    Hi Mike, I had a wonderful time learning, building, and sharing with you. Your home is truly going to be a work of art. Thank you for letting me get my hands dirty.

    Hello, Sir!

    The hubs and I are still wanting to build out here in Jax. Would you please add us to your workshop blog list? We would like to stop buy, see it, get a feel, and pitch in if you’ve got some work going on. We need to get started on our own soon, and still haven’t been exposed in real life….eek!

    Thank you!

    Jamie
