This garden art studio was built using paneled walls that were built at home and truck to the site. The wall panels were finished with wild edge cedar on the outside.  We did a light straw infill on the inside covered with a cob plaster.  Our interns Shailer and Blake sculpted the river and inlay-ed stain glass for an amazing and beautiful affect.  One of the many wonderful things about working with cob is that it takes only a little coaching for first timers to really get the hang of working with straw and clay.

The roof has reciprocating cedar boughs sheeted with wild edge cedar.  Insulation, ponds liner, flakes of straw, a sprinkle of composted soil and voila living roof.  Nancy has finished the living roof off with a variety of sedum that makes a tight low mat of color and blooms.
