About cobb houses

COBB HOUSES use earth, straw and sand to create an eco friendly long lasting, fire resistant structure. If you don’t build with kabook-i, you should build with cobb. Many cobb houses in the UK still stand that are over 200 years old.

THE PRINCIPLES BEHIND A COBB & A KABOOK-I ARE THE SAME

EARTH MATERIALS – LOW IMPACT- LOW COST: HOWEVER, KABOOK-I IS MORE STRUCTURED WITH ITS INTERLOCKING KEY SYSTEM AND USES BAMBOO – (I don’t feel that’s better or worse – it just is : )

What’s the difference between COBB & ADOBE BRICKS? check it out.
