2020 Building Seminar " DIY " !
In the new year of 2020 Georgia Adobe(TM) will offer the earliest of our building seminar, held at our Commerce, Georgia facility. The days for the class are scheduled for *Jan. 27 , 28, 29, 30, 2020 ! The seminar cost is just $1000 (per attendee on site) and you get lots for that that small fee, to help you prepare to do it yourself.
Sign up soon, as only 20 students will be allowed to attend in order to be able to work with each attendee as much as is possible. The weather will be cool and we will begin at 10 AM and class will go until 5 PM with several breaks and a lunch held in between. A Free grilled hot dog lunch is offered on site, along with various prepackaged snacks offered, warm drinks of hot tea and coffee and of course Ice Cold soft drinks ! If you have a special dietary requirement , please provide that yourself, and restrooms are on site too.
The Georgia Adobe(TM) structure is designed normally to meet all the basic needs of the structures occupants and can be on or off grid as maybe required but it's built from nearly free materials ( up to 80% ). A Georgia Adobe(TM) structure can normally blend into any location , subdivision or setting without sticking out as that the facade can be shaped in many styles, thus there's never a need for the building to look like some 1960's hippy shack. Built from Earth Sheltered thick thermal mass, ( often Earth Sheltered ) so a Georgia Adobe(TM) structure, can survive all most all normal seasonal climate changes and then some as the inside conditions can remain at a constant 58 degrees year round, due to the buildings envelop transferring the Earth's energy to the building. Then the occupant can change the temperature for example by 14 degrees through passive solar. Lowering the temperature is easy too, from fresh air entering the structure, from natural ventilation methods.
The studies of the seminar will be focused upon the Georgia Adobe(TM) methods of Rammed Earth Construction and the building codes many will encounter along with our interpretation of our collective constitutional rights we all possess as it applies to land use and home construction. All tools needed for the construction will be provided all that is needed is the attendees abilities and a mind ready to learn. All attendees will experience hands on construction and classroom time too. Dress in layers for construction work, as you may get dirty during the days events, remember it's real construction ! Construction methods and all information presented is proprietary information held closely by Georgia Adobe(TM) , thus to protect the innocent and the guilty alike, a licensing agreement for the attendee to build 1 Georgia Adobe for their personal use is included in the seminar, plus an "NDA" (non disclosure agreement) is required to be agreed to and signed by all attendees.
