Natural Building Intensive

Endeavour’s one-month Natural Building Intensive puts you at the heart of a natural building project, from foundations to finishes.
You will learn about the design and construction of modern natural buildings, using materials sourced from the local environment to create healthy, affordable and energy efficient shelter.
You will work with teachers and practitioners who are leaders in the field and work with fellow participants who are motivated and enthusiastic.

Join us for an experience that will give you the skills to tackle your own natural building project.

2018 program dates: August 7 – August 31

Overview

Our one-month natural building intensive is designed to give you hands-on experience with all the key building materials, systems and strategies for natural building. We will undertake a small-scale project that ensures participants get to experience all stages of construction, from initial site preparation to final finishes, including:

straw bale building
hempcrete
timber and wood framing
natural plasters
earthen floors
stone and natural concrete
recycled and repurposed materials

Classroom modules in the natural building intensive include:

Design for natural materials
Building science for natural structures
Material sourcing and assessment

Participants will also tour natural buildings in the Peterborough area and meet with builders and homeowners in the region.
