Basic Construction

We will go over how to use power tools safely and what are the best tools for the job, as well as the basic principles of creating structural integrity. Our project will be creating the frame and roof for a cob bench. We can explain the basics of building a cob or straw bale house through this example. The bench is a part of the zero waste effort at the fair as it will include plastic bottles stuffed with clean plastic trash - bottle bricks - as infill between the frame and then covered in cob.
