A Taste of Phase 2

We reached the 11th (and last) course of tires on Sunday Oct 5th.

There’s still some leveling to do to finish the 11th course. Next we will use cob, anchor bolts, and wood to make a bond beam that will run all across the U-shape of the top course of tires.

The last couple of days, we have been doing some prep work for Saturday with the help of Weston and Mandy.

Today I cut the edges of some 15-foot floor boards, sanded them, cut the extra 1 foot or so that we don’t need, and marked the placement of some spacer blocks.
Doing some carpentry, finally, felt really nice and motivating. Phase 2 (the roof) is approaching!
