What the Cob?
Building with earth is an ancient practice that has withstood the test of time. Some of our oldest inhabited buildings are made with earth from 11 story skyscrapers in Yemen to renovated cozy cottages in England, this building material has stood the test of time. Modern cob is a mixture of sand clay and straw. Like a tiny brick wall, the clay binds the sand aggregates together. Straw behaves like rebar and gives the structure tensile strength. The final construction creates a cohesive monolithic structure.
