For more details, join our ‘cob building’ group on Facebook here: If you would like us to build you one .direct message us and we can either guide or build for you a forever home using your design/location to be as natural with the land as possible . This video shows our cob-house build from foundations up to the living roof (the interior isn’t done yet). We’ve used stone that was already on the site (from a past ruined shed – that you see us dismantle at the start of the video). Reclaimed windows were found in skips and wood is from an old barn. The clay and earth we used had been the original mortar for the old stone shed – so that’s recycled too. For th living roof we used cardboard and old carpet from skips. We did have to buy lime mortar, plywood boards, sand, pondliner and screws/nails,, which came to approx 700 euros. It took us about 4 months (with just 2 of us working on it) to get this far.

    How is this cob, when they are using rock/ flagstone mostly for the structural integrity of the wall's, with cob serving more or less as mortar between the flagstones and as a surface finish product?

    You never showed how the cob is mixed and maybe show what kind of straw is best…..maybe in the montage footage inform people like myself the what,why and when…watched another video which was in Ireland and I presume it was yourselfs who were critical of the technique the other blokes were using….(constructively that is)….there's a video I watched just before that one called … Leslie cornell building restoration….looked good??? Different technique from the Irish bloke….
