Straw Bale Wall Raisings/ Workshops, Dec. '98, Concord CA Oasis Ecohousing (East SF Bay) Happy Thanksgiving!, After a long summer/ fall of post and beam framing construction activity and coordinating with the local building department, Concord (CAOasis Ecohousing is pleased to announce a series of free weekend straw bale wall raisings/ workshops roughly featuring bale stacking earlier in the month and detailing later in the month. As our roof has been installed over the structure, we will not be significantly impacted by weather. This two story structure will feature bales placed on edge in an infill structure. 1)If possible, please let us know by e-mail by Wednesday before the weekend that you'ld like to visit and work with us so that we can plan activities based on a head count. We are not very good at returning phone calls. 2) Bring sturdy shoes, gloves, and long sleeves. Safety glasses and dust mask are advisable for comfort. 3) Please bring food for yourself at least, and consider bringing something for a potential pot luck dinner afterwards. 4)Our insurance company won't allow kids under 18 on the construction site, but they can play or maybe do a project next door- please be prepared to watch or share watching if you bring children. 5) Let us know if you would like to help prep for the weekends or work during the week. 6) If you are a tradesperson or have other skills to offer, let us know so that we can utilize your skills to the highest level. 7)We'll typically work from 9-5. In Sustainable Community, Mark DeMaio, PE Concord Oasis E-coHousing (http://members.tripod.com/~Oasis_Ecohousing/index.html) Where we're currently building a straw bale building, scheduling informal low to no cost worshops, and seek volunteers, workers, and core group participants. Directions: Going north on 680, get off at the Treat exit shortly after the 680/24 "Y" and make a right on Treat. Go approximately 2 miles and make a left at light onto Oak Grove Road. Go through the next 2 lights on Oak Grove Rd. on either side of a Bart underpass (David and Minert). Go through the next light (Chalomar on your right, Keswick on your left) and make a right on the unnamed private drive just past Concordia Lutheran Church, just before the New Directions Counseling Center. If you come to the next light (Whitman Road) you have gone too far. The property is located on the unnamed private drive just behind the counseling center (2nd lot on left, follow new pavement to the left). Meet at the construction site at 994 A Oak Grove Road or inquire at 994B Oak Grove Road, the single story house on the middle parcel of the second lot on the left.
