Cheryl Corsiglia

Living Craft
Lafayette, CO
Cheryl got her start in natural building in 2010 through an internship working on the first straw bale home completed by affordable housing non-profit Community Rebuilds in Moab, UT. With her background in Environmental Science, she was instantly attracted to the common-sense ideas behind building better, safer homes which not only benefit their residents’ health and finances, but also help to reduce environmental impacts. In 2014, Cheryl traveled to Nicaragua to take an improved adobe and earthen building class with Liz Johndrow of the Nicaragua Pueblo Project. There she learned how to design and build homes using adobe blocks, cob, and other traditional earthen building methods. Returning to Colorado, she joined Common Earth where she began applying her skills to local projects, while also honing new talents. She co-founded Living Craft Design Build with two business partners in 2015, to focus on offering natural and healthy home building and renovation in the Front Range. Cheryl became a member of the board of the Colorado Straw Bale Association in 2016 and is working with that group to promote straw building and other natural construction methods.
