Lama Retreat Home: Progress in Pictures

At Diamond Mountain we like to build and we like to move dirt (earth).  And one of our favorite reasons for doing this is to help our teachers.  For a couple years some hard-working dirt-pushers have been working on an earthbag dome house for Geshe Michael and Lama Christie in which they can do the next three-year retreat.  All the work has been done by hand and without major equipment and the work has been remarkable.

A few weeks ago the glorious Kat released the latest images from the progress.  We've gone from excavation to building!  Mazel tov.  To see the progress in pictures check out this photo set.  To see the progress firsthand come out and put that first, and second, hand in the dirt and help out on the mountain.
