Hi all!

My fiance and I are coming out in April to check out Boise before we move there from Indianapolis in June. Our plans for the future are to buy land and build our own homestead/raise chickens/grow food/live off the land. We are new to permaculture and would love to get involved in the community and meet up! If anyone is free, we will be out there April 22-25 and would love to meet some like minded locals!

Please feel free to e-mail me @ b.smith1287@yahoo.com or message me back on here.

How can someone avoid such stated situation when building a cob home? It seems that cob has successfully been built in damp England, incredible cob homes in cold cold Canada...so why would this structure not be suited for NE Missouri? Can anyone bring light to this question? I see people mention a dehumidifier, but having one running all the time seems like it would be a bit much..? Are there other ways?

Rusty,

We are a small two person family who are looking to relocate to your area and build a cob/ earthen type home on land. We are out in Indiana right now and Boise area seems to be a better fit. Are you still out there? I would love to have a conversation with you about natural building and your area/ land. I used to live in Portland and have been seeing that there are a lot of cob builders in that general area. Have you considered staying out there and selling pieces of your land and starting a community? I know it's far out, but I believe if you set the example people will come!

cob
Has anyone built any cob structures in Idaho? We are looking to purchase land there and build a cob house. I have heard mixed reviews on cob in cold/hot weather with condensation or cracking...Does anyone have insight to this?

Thank you!
