I am very happy to announce that I have been accepted into a five month internship-semester starting [on July 15th] with ‘Community Rebuilds!’ 😀 I will be back on December 15th [all supa’-sexy strong too! -From all of that heavy lifting, hammering, climbing, etc]. 😉 🙂 The site for the internship, shall be in Moab, Utah.
The building will have a marriage between natural building and elements of present-day construction. It will have a loft on the second floor, along with solar panels and parmaculture garden[s] nearby the home. 🙂
.. What is this Community Rebuilds, you say?
Well, it’s an amazing program to help communities and families obtain an affordable home, with a low-carbon footprint. Interns like myself, will learn through forty-hour weeks [weekends off] from the ground-up in how to design and build a strawbale house for a client [future homeowner]. I shall be learning all of the last-remaining parts and pieces we need to learn; of what it takes to build a structurally-sound and safely-built home, within care of how this house can minimally impact the environment.
I shall also be gaining in-person training and experience upon what it takes to be a great teacher and leader. 🙂 Obtaining further problem-solving skills and extending more of a better grasp upon what tools we need [along with how to properly use them out on the field].
*Photos, will be posted when I come back from this adventure. 🙂
