THE NATURAL BUILDERS
The plant dying workshop we went to was held at the "Grandma Mary's Organic Farm" home of Marisha Farnsworth and Kevin Rowell, founders of The Natural Builders. Marisha told us her Grandma always said that in Japan 1/3 of an acre is considered to be a farm, hence their home affectionately being called a "farm." The wall in the above photo was created is Cob and the paint in the bathroom below is a natural pigment/plaster. Love the wine glass windows :)

From their website:

Many natural building techniques are inspired by vernacular architecture from around the world--artisanal techniques that are used to create unique structures, which demonstrate the evidence of human touch. The re-examination of these traditional techniques in the context of building science and engineering has delivered a way of building that fits with today's ecologically mindful lifestyle, complies with codes, and withstands the test of time. Natural buildings are healthier for the people who live in them and healthier for the planet.
