Cob in beautiful and pragmatic detail, 23 Oct 2007
I am interested in sustainable building practices and wanted to explore cob as a viable, low-impact building option. This is by far the best guide out there. It offers a step-by-step approach to building a cob structure, with useful and beautiful illustrations and photographs. The writing style and philosophical approach of the authors to the practice is also quite inspiring. You feel like you've come across some great friends who want to work in common cause with you and lend a supportive word. Excellent resource for newcomers to sustainable building concepts as well in this regard. I highly recommend it.
