The fourth Continental Cordwood Conference (2011) was directed toward two major themes: Energy Efficiency and Best Practices.  The conference highlighted the latest developments in this old fashioned alternative building technique.  Presentations included many 'state of the art' and hybrid examples of cordwood/stackwall buildings. The conference featured speakers on a wide variety of log-end topics, presentation of papers and testing results.

Speakers Featured:  Olle Hagman from Sweden: Cordwood homes in Sweden and Norway. Clint Cannon: Double wall cordwood and Balewall, Cliff Shockey: Lessons Learned in a lifetime of cordwood building, Richard Flatau: The White Earth Reservation Cordwood Home and Best Practices with Cordwood at the Cordwood Education Center, and many more.

Cordwood Conference Papers are a highlight of the conference.  22 articles (130 full color pages of information and innovations) from cordwood authors around the world. These are cutting edge articles about what is happening right now in the world of cordwood.
