Building at Libre

We've been at Libre for six days now and are living life to the fullest.  We're here to enjoy friends, be in nature, and learn more about this fabulous 40-year old commune.  Libre is one of the oldest art communes in the country and distinguished by its variety of architectural innovations. One of the only rules at Libre is that accepted members must build their own homes.  As a result, the community is comprised of do-it-yourself people who know how to do everything.  Their homes range from domes to jewel-shaped inverted A-frames, to barn-style houses to Gaudi-esque compilations.  

For the past 5 days, we've been working with Linda Fleming and Michael Moore on a new workshop behind their house.  They've done a ton of building in the past and are incredible foremen.  Here are a few shots of the work in progress.

It's wonderful to be here -- working hard, learning lots, eating well, and breathing deep.  Everyday I feel a bit more LIBRE.
