This six week accelerated skill builder will begin before the EcoNest Intensive, include all of the EcoNest Intensive workshops and Seminar, and continue after. Students will develop and hone building skills from foundation to roof framing, completing the shell of a small EcoNest under the direct guidance of Robert Laporte and his staff. The course is structured for those wishing to immerse themselves in natural building, expanding both skill and knowledge base. This boot camp will be physically and mentally challenging and is not designed for casual learning! Only four apprenticeship positions available.
