Yestermorrow Design/Build Classes in Vermont

I am drooling over the Yestermorrow Design Build School and though it is almost the end of January, I have a new, new years resolution.

I will attend a class of some sort (at the yestermorrow school or likewise) and learn a new hands on do it myself building technique.

As I peruse the course offerings of the Yestermorrow school (in the Mad River Valley of Vermont), I am intrigued by the Earthen Oven building course, the art of  stone working course (with my new crush Thea Alvin), or maybe I will learn to make a willow canoe, or participate in the yurt design/build class.  My head is swimming with the excitement of possibilities.

    I would totally want to go to the Concrete Counter class! I think it would be very interesting to build our own counter. However I am already going to the Organic Growers School Conference: http://realmountainvalues.com/2011/01/organic-growers-school-2011/ . Not sure I can interest the husband in a trip to Vermont just to learn to make a countertop.

    It looks like an awesome school though. So many topics to choose from.

    I love the small-house building workshops. I wasn’t familiar with http://www.yestermorrow.org/ before reading your post.
