David Arkin and Anni Tilt will be speaking on straw-bale, rammed earth, watershed block, light straw clay, etc at the CRAN (Custom Residential Architects Network) Symposium on September 19. The following day, September 20, there will be a tour of four homes, one of which will be Vine Hill Straw Bale Residence.

Anni and David completed the Inaugural Climate Ride Northwest, bicycling over 360 miles with 24,733 feet of climbing.  The ride began and ended in Seattle, and included Whidbey and San Juan Islands, Victoria B.C., Olympic National Park and Port Townsend, WA.  Anni achieved two personal longest rides ever during the event, cycling 68 miles on the first day and over 80 on her fifth day of riding.  David's ride included the challenging 'Ride the Hurricane', a 17 mile, 5200' climb from Port Angeles, WA to the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center in Olympic National Park, considered one of the top 100

With many years of admiring and incorporating Vetrazzo recycled glass countertops into our projects, we are pleased to be recognized for this recent off-grid straw bale home near Healdsburg. Take a look at the wonderful blog post by Vetrazzo about this honor: http://blog.vetrazzo.com/and-we-have-a-winner...-arkin-tilt-named-2016-vetrazzo-design-star
