Community Rebuilds is a fantastic organisation operating in Utah and Colorado.
They replace dilapidated housing with super efficient straw bale homes, and use the build as a free training tool.
I built two houses with community rebuilds as an intern and as an apprentice/instructor. It truly shaped my future… and I had a lot of fun!
There are still spaces available for the upcoming builds, so if you think spending 4 months building a house for a low income family, in the most stunning scenery, with the most incredible people, sounds like fun… go here: http://www.communityrebuilds.org/internshipprograms.html
