Foundations coming up and up!

The foundations have come up to ground level from one meter deep! A lot of hard work, Misheck and Abel have been doing a great job. The stone work is coming above ground level now to make the stem wall, which will be between 30cm and 50cm above ground level, this protects the cob walls from damp and any splash back from rain coming off the roof.

I've been delivering water each day to the site and soaking clay in bins 

The foundations 3 weeks ago
