Darles is an avid natural builder and designer who loves to create long-lasting, beautiful, and enriching infrastructure out of readily available materials such as clay, sand, and salvaged materials. She enjoys putting her skill-set towards creating positive social change and has worked on everything from tiny house villages for formerly homeless, straw-bale buildings for Water Protectors at Standing Rock, fairy fort building with kids, small- commercial strawbale offices for worker-co-ops, urban cob structures, storm-water infiltration, native plant rain gardens, and remodeling and rehabilitating houses using natural materials. She also enjoys sharing the viability, accessibility, and joy of natural building with others through workshops, talks, writing, and other educational events. She is currently doing carpentry and natural building in the Bay area, and lives in an off-grid skoolie. She’s excited about building more tiny structures, both for herself and other.
