Learn about a 10-year “green” construction project, building a replica of a 17th century Normandy chateau in Ashland.
Full Event Description: What do those annoying styrofoam packaging “peanuts” have to do with the replica of a 17th century Normandy chateau glimpsed from Oak Street in Ashland near I-5? Believe it or not, a composite of those peanuts bound with concrete was used to form the cinder blocks from which the 8,000 square foot chateau was constructed. A free Community Lecture presented by Stanley Mazor, owner of and the creative force behind Chateau Herbe, will take place on Wednesday, April 7 1:00 to 3:00 pm in Room D of SOU’s Campbell Center, located at 655 Frances Lane in Ashland. The talk will describe the process behind this multi-phase 10-year “green” construction project — a process chronicled in Mazor’s book, “Design an Expandable House.” The program is sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at SOU and is part of a regular weekly series. Details are available at www.sou.edu/olli or by calling 541-552-6048.
