You can't read this book and not want to build with cob!,
This review is from: Building with Cob: A Step-by-step Guide (Sustainable Building) (Paperback)
I recommend this book very highly to anyone living in or thinking of building a cob home - easily readable but packed full of detailed instructions. Takes you from choosing a site through the design and build of a new project - I've started dreaming about this even though I got the book for information on tackling cob repairs and re-rendering. Well worth getting even if you're planning to get cob work done by professionals - arm yourself with the knowledge to prevent damaging mistakes such as the use of modern renders and acrylic based paints. I'd say buy the book - at the very least it looks good on your bookshelf and gets you outside playing in the mud!
