17th posting - Adobe is on all the walls!

Thursday, September 13, my sister Valerie helped me start on the last wall with the adobe. 
Now that the walls are all covered with adobe, I can probably work on the roof this winter when we have decent weather. You can't do adobe work if it's too cold, but we typically have lots of nice enough days in the winter for working on a roof. The next posting will be when significant framing is done for the roof.
In this picture, you can see the north exterior wall still showing the earth bags. Valerie took the picture just before we started throwing mud!

By late afternoon the north wall was done.

A look at the interior of the cabin - it looks more like a cabin with the adobe on the walls.

My little adobe cabin, hidden away in the woods.
