Touched by the Hand of CobA ton of pictures and only a bit of text from our cob course at Edwards & Eve Cob Building in August this year. Took me a while to write up again, mostly because I was busy doing some actual work on the plans and the oven :-) and I do hope it’ll convince you all to go attend a course yourselves. Nothing like a cob course to get you going!

side view sketchOur latest versions of the floor plans, along with a few more rough elevation sketches to help you understand how the house will fit into the site. There are still quite a few question marks, and they’re only accurate to about 15 cm oder so, but I do feel they’re really, really good.
