On the way to Heartwood

I recently found out that I'll be one of four apprentices this sumemr at the Heartwood School for Building Arts. I am really stoked; I'll be taking seven weeks of classes:
06/25-29 Timber Framing
07/02-06 Natural Building: Making an Earth and Straw Bake Oven
07/09-13 Converting Trees to Timbers
07/16-20 Raising & Rigging, Site Safety, Knots and Ropework
07/23-37 Scribing
07/30-08/10 Homebuilding
It will be an intense period but I hope I'll be able to make some good contacts in the area and make some headway into learning about joinery and sustainable building. I'll keep track here of things as they unfold.
