Spending time at @willowend_round_house to help build their house was definitely one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of our recent trip through Australia! We’ve been interested in the SuperAdobe building technique for a while and having this hands-on learning opportunity reaffirmed us that we will build our own dome in the future (Just a little smaller 😉) Hopefully with this bunch of legends we met here!! Check out @willowend_round_house and @calearthinstitute for more info on natural building with SuperAdobe

Wow those are some beautiful lines of adobes. Unfortunately it's the end of adobe brick making season. Now that the rains have started finding a flat space to dry them is impossible. We are beyond pleased with the number of quality bricks we made over the last few months 🙌 Most have been used to build the adobe brick shower for our new guest cabin. The rest are stacked and waiting for the next shower to be built. Thanks to all the groups and our apprentices for their hard work put into making all these bricks. Boom adobe 💪 #adobebricks
Interested in getting your hands dirty and learning some natural building methods? We have a few options to get involved in. Apply for our Sustainability Primer coming up this August, or our year long apprenticeship for 2019. Or check out next years natural plasters course that will focus on clay and polished plasters! Happy building! #naturalbuilding#naturalhomes#naturalplasters

In the mountains, this hurricane resistant Earthship Sustainability Center is in the making... reusing tires, glass, cans, and other "trash". Once finished it will serve as a learning center for the community and safe shelter during hurricane season. A sacred space for children and adults to learn and put into practice sustainable practices such as rain water harvesting, diy solar systems, sustainable building, beekeeping and much more. So much love for you and the team @ta_ma_po_la ✨ #earthship#sustainablebuilding#puertoricolove
Demolition day. Sweat, dirt and tears. We spent a good amount of time looking like this to get the walls ready for a replaster. Remodels are never easy, but hopefully rewarding in the end. #remodelling#demolition#workhardplayhard
