    Description

    We are a family living in the foothills of North East Los Angeles. We are artists, anarchists, and vegetarians and we have a teenager, a cat, and a pug. We are constructing a super adobe eco-dome. We are close to public transportation and have hiking trails within walking distance of our house.

    We will be working most every weekend on the building of the eco-dome. We are building WEEKENDS ONLY due to my work. YOU CAN ONLY STAY HERE ON WEEKENDS. I provide food on work days, ONLY Thursday night 6pm - Monday morning 9am.

    We are finishing a super-adobe eco dome in our backyard. We need help and can easily train anyone to assist with the build. Super adobe is soil that is put into long sandbags and tamped down to create adobe. The structure is coiled and looks somewhat like a beehive. We are preparing to plaster the inside and outside as the structure is complete.
