Building with Cobs

This is a building technique which requires a mixture of clay, soil, sand and straw all mixed together with water. The outcome of this concoction is the cob, a natural recyclable, eco friendly material used in cob building. 

Cob building itself has been around for years but has recently had a revival. Here are some advantages of Cob Building,

  • Cob Building provides very good insulation
  • Cob Building is very eco friendly and recyclable
  • Cob are generated without the use of energy wasting machinery

See this inspirational film clip for a climpse of the amazing houses that have been created by the natural art of cobbing,

Alternatively you can purchase the book "building with Cob" by Adam Weisman and Katy Bryce, an expert introduction to Cob building.
