Retreat Cabin #1: Serious Progress

The first retreat cabin for the upcoming 3-year retreat at Diamond Mountain is well underway. The four room house features passive solar heating, an adobe floor, a composting toilet, and a really neat layout.  I'll do my best to have pictures up after my next visit to the site.  Doug Veenhof and crew are working five-day weeks and plan to have the cabin finished before September.

If you want to be a part of the crew email Doug (dveenhof at cableone.net) and get the details.  As of now the framing is about complete and I would guess that the roof may go up next.  It's all very exciting.  Only 53 more to go!
