Pallet House Workshop
This cute little dwelling was designed by a high-end New York Architecture Firm and is an award-winning emergency shelter, just under 200 sq ft total. The unit is very functional, with living and kitchen space, a small bathroom and a sleeping loft! Both front and rear entrances come with some outdoor living space as well. With today's housing shortage, why not make extra cash and offer cool housing options! Backyard rental, anyone? NOTE: not legally permitted as an occupied dwelling in Lake County. Mendocino and in other counties & countries, this can be built as home or office.
Our Workshop leaders will be guiding us through the basic building concepts for temporary and permanent applications, and we will be continuing to work on the entire structure, floor thru roof in the 4-day workshop. Our focus is to learn about utilizing materials from the waste stream and building with natural, toxin-free materials to infill pallets and create a warm, cozy shelter.
Special guest TEACHER MIGUEL ELLIOT, AKA Sir Cobalot will be teaching cob-over pallets with clean, nontoxic, and energy efficient insulation.
With core support from carpenter Dustin Daggs, teachers include Harbinite Davel (or Dave L.), and resident cobber Brenda Quintero, with much assistance from farm staff Steve, Becca, Jake and Monica throughout the weekend.
Cost for the full 4-day workshop is $195 and includes lunch daily and onsite camping at beautiful Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm located in Middletown, Lake County, CA.
