  1. Great job, Wayne for gathering up so much information in so little time. There are a couple more Design Build Live workshop opportunities with hands-on fun on March 7th and 14th relating to earthen plaster of interior walls and earthen flooring. Those should be visible on the Design Build Live site. Let me know if you can't find the information. --Stephen C.
