Cob house of Jennifer Fruth and Robert Brown. Construction began in 2006 on the first phase with Robert and Jennifer themselves laying the first foundation. Work began in 2007 on second phase with interior courtyard still planned. Owners moved into the first phase in 2008 when the rainwater cistern filled for the first time. Finish plasters and floors on second phase scheduled for winter '08/spring '09.

The tale of this project in now reaching epic status, intertwinning the lives and livleyhoods of over a dozen people. It is for us the birthplace of our unconventional construction model and the germination ground for several natural building careers. Whatever the future of this house, its legacy stands.
