We’d like to thank everyone that came out to our Bale Stacking and Plastering Workshop back in May. The tumultuous spring weather held out for us and we had a great team for a day of fun. A big THANK YOU to Morgan Cate of Adaptive Habitats Construction and Dave Kaplan of Elevated Design-Build for letting us consume their Saturday.
COSBA will officially be changing its name to the Natural Building Alliance. Our mission, vision, and goals will remain much the same – just in an expanded format. In addition to straw bales, we’ll be honoring and advocating for ALL genres of natural building materials and methods: adobe, cob, hempcrete, timber, you name it.
Well COSBA had a very busy September, which included hosting a bale stacking workshop, attending the Higher Ground Fair in Laramie, and having a strawbale home featured in the Boulder Green Home Tour, hosted by the Colorado Green Building Guild.
