Joni Cobs the Windows!!

Joni got right to work this morning. She has been working on "cobbing" in the two picture windows.

Cobbing in the corner. I was amazed at how applying just a couple of layers of mud to the wall, anchors the Strawbales and the Window into place. Makes it solid:

It only took her three hours to mix a batch of cob and build up the walls another six inches. Joni works hard. Doesn't complain. And didn't even ask me to help--as she knows I like to do nothing the first day after my week of work in the Napa Valley. That's one way she lets me know she loves me: she lets me be a sloth...
