    Description

    Hi. My name is Ganga from Vietnam. I am planing to build a cob house near a beach in the South of Vietnam. I am very new to cob construction and the natural building movement therefore I need helps and advises on how to best design it to suit the actual condition of my land (5W x 50L in meter). Wish to start building in December 2020 and complete it by March 2021.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As my knowledge about cob building is very humble, I plan to learn from volunteers about building technique. For cultural exchange activities, we could do a tour to a local market to learn about some Vietnamese specialties and try authentic Vietnamese food, or we could picnic at the beach and socialize with local fishermen.
