Welcome

Sarah Machtey is a natural builder/designer currently living in the southeast corner of Vermont. She has been involved in natural building for over a decade. Most of her work has been in the Northeast U.S., but she’s also been involved in projects ranging from cobbing in Argentina… to strawbale in Pakistan’s Northwest Frontier Province… to the annual community replastering of the world’s largest earthen mosque in Djenne, Mali. Her sculptural cob work has appeared in the respected monthly Environmental Building News, and the books Using Natural Finishes and The Hybrid House.
