Adobe Boundary Wall: DVNP, CA
In March 2015 I helped lead an adobe restoration project at Death Valley National Park. We restored a section of an old adobe boundary wall which now surrounds a park service maintenance yard. The CCC built the original wall in the 1930s. Cornerstones Community Partnerships organized the adobe work for this project. Americorps and various university programs supplied the volunteers.
Key education takeaways:
- on-site natural adobe brick production in CA
- double-wythe adobe wall construction using adobe bricks and mortar
- lime-stabilized adobe cap brick production
- lime-stabilized adobe wall capping using lime-stabilized mortar and bricks
