Building with Cob


Since funding is BARE some very lovely people have pointed me in the direction of building alternatives one of which I enjoy very much because it is natural, sustainable and cost-efficient–“cob.”

Apparently cob is similiar to adobe except that it is less “sturctured.” This is ideal for L’isola because it will be fun and promotes team work and it is easy enough for inexpereinced builders to get involved in. Essentially, it will be like building a giant mud pie, so I’m not sure who wouldn’t want to do that!

Here are some links with a good amount of info on cob building and particulars:
