We are located in the Piney Woods of NorthEast Texas nestled in the hills and secluded forest with 50 acres of beautiful red clay, and small lakes.
Among the many programs we offer, our most popular is Cob Hill Natural Building School. The school offers workshops designed to give you the maximum amount of hands-on-experience in all aspects of a build. We accomplish this by having builds in various stages of completion. You will get hands-on-experience with foundations, walls, windows, doors and roof systems.
Those attending a 10 day or more workshop are automatically enrolled in our Lifetime of Learning (LOL) Program. Cat Taylor is very adamant about ensuring the success of your dream to build your own natural home. She understands you will not remember everything you learn during your workshop. The LOL Program allows you to return to any workshop tuition free, paying only a small fee for food, for the rest of your life.
The proceeds from our programs support our Veterans and First Responders allowing them to attend our workshops and other programs at a sliding scale discounted rate dependent upon level of disability rating. A standard 20% discount is always offered to Veterans, Active Military and First Responders regardless of disability.
These workshops are not only about natural building, the act of working with others in the soil is extremely therapeutic. The soil itself contains Mycobacterium Vaccae which has been shown to improve mental health and depression. Empowerment, self-worth and purpose are just some of the benefits from attending our natural building workshops.
Plans are in the works for our other programs.

Our horses have been rescued from bad situations or spared from the kill pen because of a loss of ability. We believe there’s no better connection than an animal and a human that share a history of trauma or a loss.
