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.
THIS VIDEO SHOWS A ‘COBB’ TYPE PLASTER SCREED BEING ADDED TO AN EARTH BAG HOUSE
CHECK OUT THE OLD COBB HOUSE – I LOVE THESE COBB HOUSES
AND HERE’S SOME LIME PLASTER BEING ADDED TO A COBB HOUSE
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.
For private, not for profit users; please feel free to use my kabook-i system. I would only ask that you post your project, along with detailed floor plans on this website.
