The purpose of this handbook is to show you how you can build your own magical, practical, long-lasting cob home for very little money and have a wonderful time doing it! Cob is in the early stages of being rediscovered in the modern world. Ideas and innovations are popping up all the time. I wish I could say I learned cob from the folks of the past generation, but I can’t. I am sharing my “modern” cob experience and current thoughts.
Because cob is such a tactile kind of thing, I usually teach about it via hands-on workshops. It’s easy to show people how to do it. When I sat down to write this book, I was amazed at how many words it takes to describe something that fingers can understand without a single word! Cobbing is easy. All the text makes a simple thing seem a lot more complicated than it really is. Try it! You can do it! Think of the words in this book as a reminder of what your common sense and ancient memory already know.
My intention in writing this handbook is to encourage the rebirth of natural building. This book is designed to make it easy for you to join other pioneers in this wholesome adventure. It is written for people with or without building experience. I hope this is the kind of book that you will want to keep and pass on to young people to inspire them to build natural homes in the future. (I wish that it could be made out of cob so it would last for hundreds of years.)
