In my last blog posting, "How do I Learn Cordwood Construction?," I mentioned that my next blog would be about How to Build a Practice Building. There are basically 3 ways to learn a new building technique.

3 Ways to Learn Cordwood Building

1.  Read all the available literature

2.  Take a workshop from an expert  Cordwood Workshops

3.  Build a practice building

I would highly recommend doing all three, but if for some reason you can't attend a workshop, then you want to consider:  Reading everything you can on the process and build a small, manageable practice building.  This will inform you of the demands of the technique, the time frame involved and what it looks like upon completion.
