sunday, the anti christmas, day 38

Today was a bigger day at the laundry than it was at the site.

And our project has absolutely been eclipsed by a front end repair Jim is doing on his friends 2003 Honda Goldwing. People make rammed earth houses all over the world, all the time, all kinds of ways (you knew that silly) but how often do you get to check out a tear down and rebuilding of a Goldwing?

Tomorrow it is our hope that we can get these two walls all formed up, ready to roll so we can start ramming at "8 bells" on Tuesday morning.

This one (wall E) is pretty close to being ready.

Below is where wall B is going to go. Personally, I can't wait to get that one done, as it will afford us a little bit of shelter from the pounding sun for the rest of the summer (and for the next several hundred years.)

Speaking of the next several hundred years, the chalk board was cleaned and re drawn. The hope is that we can complete 3 walls every 5 day work junket. It's a tall order, but we got a great crew. With a little bit of "slow and steady" peppered with "measure twice, cut once" I bet it can happen.
