the wall & IPinterest brought me the moss graffiti idea… now that really is something that can be done fairly quickly and is super cool. And the house where I’m living right now does not have a number on the front. So a couple of days ago I decided to forage for moss, masking tape and a ladder and try out the simpler of the two recipes I found – it sounded too simple, and I reckoned there’d be plenty to go wrong during implementation.

lime renderingSo I travelled to Norfolk in August 2012 for a four day build your own house cob course. Norfolk is home to Kate Edwards and Charlotte Eve and their company Edwards & Eve cob building. Somewhere in the middle of a nature reserve complete with a lake and whatnot, they live in an old cob-or-similar house with a cob extension that they, of course, built themselves (and we had the honour to do some lime rendering on it!). And teach courses on building cob pizza ovens and houses, and they completely rock!!
