About Liz Johndrow
I enjoy spaces that bring me in touch with my natural surroundings. As a builder, I was thrilled to discover I could bring that contact deeper into my home experience through my choice of building materials. Since that discovery, I have been exploring the world of cob, strawbale, adobe, earthbag, earthen plasters and floor systems, and more recently the world of wood through timber framing. These materials and techniques have also helped me explore the combination of natural building materials and simple systems, empowering people of all ages and abilities to participate and the creation and celebration of community in the process. The past year has taken me further into the role of teacher, facilitator, instructor and co-conspirator. I am increasingly passionate about helping others learn these skills so they in turn can share this vision of beautiful, sustainable, and socially just structures.
"I recently met Liz while she was facilitating at NBX 2011 in Asheville. I was impressed and amazed by her vast knowledge of so many natural building techniques and her work experience. Liz was an absolute joy to work with; I plan to collaborate with her on future projects and use her as a mentor as I grow within my own career."April Magill, Architect, SC
