High walls and classes

We've really made some progress on the bathroom walls (images below). Pretty soon we'll start work on the inside. It is amazing how quick the adobe went up. Also, Kat has finished the first bagged earth cottage. They topped it off with a yurt dome and plaster. I'll put some pictures up as soon as I get over to see it myself.

We are also in the middle of ACI course 16 right now. It is being taught by David Stumpf. Every evening is great. Our group is small enough and bright enough to have some really wonderful discussions. I look forward to Courses 17 and 18 which are coming up.
