Cob house in one day!
In 2014, we wanted to see if we could built a cob cabin in one day. 60 people showed up to help, some of them cooks, some carpenters. In order to make the cob go up fast, we used the "wood-cob" technique. This also made it so the walls needed very little trimming and there was no "muffining": the way wet cob walls tend to bulge out on the top because it is too wet and heavy.
Bale-cob is used in places where you want extra insulation and at the same time have the wall go up a little faster. Its is usually on the north or west side of cob buildings, where there few or no windows
