Building with CobBK0105
This practical book, Building with Cob covers everything from design, planning and siting, to roofs, insulation and floors. Lavishly illustrated with inspirational colour photographs, the book explains how this ancient practice has been used throughout Britain for centuries. Cob building uses a simple mixture of clay sub-soil, aggregate, straw and water to create solid structural walls built without shuttering or forms, on to a stone plinth. The fact that 45,000 of Cornwall's housing stock is cob, is a testament to the material's strength and durability.
This book is great for beginners who want to experiment with this practical material and is equally as beneficial for those who’d like to improve on their Cob building knowledge. 252 pages.
