Cob is durable and sustainable and it adds an extra touch of beauty to any structure. The beautiful, tactile, organic forms which result, are showstopping.
Having used cob in a few of our projects, we’ve realised how stunning incorporating woodwork and earth building can be. What we’ve found through creating these structures, is that unique touches, such as a cob wall or sculpture, can really bring a project to life.
Example of using cob in our structure: The Bothy
Why do we use cob?
Aside from its time tested durability and eco-friendly ingredients, cob adds an extra touch of beauty to a woodland structure. Throw in some colourful glass bottles for light to pour through, sweet chestnut logs or a wall sculpture and you end up with a truly unique addition to the finished project that captures the magic of the woods. We have also found using cob to be a great way to get our clients involved, whether that be picking out the glass bottles and choosing where they’ll go, helping us make the mixture or letting the children get stuck in by joining us on building the cob wall.
