Hello,
My family & I just purchased 40 acres in Snowflake, Arizona. We're looking for someone that has experience in making cob homes. We would like to work something out with you. We would not have money to pay anyone so what we're offering would be for you to make money teaching people how to build with cob on our property. I will provide the material for each build such as clay, sand, & straw depending on the project. So you get to keep any funds you make from classes. We will be starting a permaculture community & with that want to create a tiny home community area out of cob. This would be a great start for someone who is interested in permaculture our farming in general. We will mainly be a food forest(orchard) with 5 acres of land for bio-intensive farming. We also don't plan to raise an6 animals for slaughter. Ideally we would want this going through spring to early summer since we live at around 5500 ft., it can get quite cold. We would not have a place for you to live, you'd have to tough it out in a tent unless you have other shelter. That would be until we build the first cob house which would be yours. This is why we would like to get this going around spring-summer so that your house will definitely be finished before winter. We won't be able to move out there for a while until the property is paid off or once the farm starts making money. We would like for the first two projects to be tiny homes. As soon as we get the other tiny home made we we'll find a permaculture designer that needs somewhere to start. You can stay on the farm as long as you are productive. You can set up as many classes as you want as long as it's in our budget for the materials. We do not expect you to continue making homes, you could also make nice walls or chicken coops, etc. Structures that add to the property, so long as it goes with the master plan. Each home that is built will have a custom-built compost toilet, a wood-burning stove, and a rain water catching system. We will be powering each tiny home with a wind turbine solar combo and each place will have propane until you make our own methane. They will also have a tankless heater and pump to pump water from the tank. We are trying to be as sustainable as possible and give back to the Earth. If this sounds like something you are interested in helping to make happen we'd love to hear from you & speak further. Many thanks for taking the time to read our ad.

Love and Light,
Timothy & Nadina
