Cob Building

Feet mixing the cob (April 2011)
Cob is thought by many to be the most sustainable building method available.

Cob is an ancient, simple and yet extremely versatile and beautiful building method. The main tools are your hands and feet, whilst the materials are earth and straw. Cob has stood the test of time - with many European cob cottages that are hundreds of years old.

Cob is simple, very forgiving and very manual. Cob removes building from the experts and gives it the people - it's great for groups of people to work on together. Without any machinery noise or dangerous tools, children and adults can work side by side and have fun, whilst creating from cob.
