diy earth building: COB

a guide to building with cob at the evergreen brickworks

when you have done this three or four times the mix will start to burrito. this is when you observe that the mix looks like a burrito when you flip it all over. (to taste; again because you are going for a mix which has a feel of compaction. you can test your mix by throwing it against a wall. does it crack- too much clay. does it not stick- not enough clay. play with your mix until you, and your particpants agree that you have got it right)
