Cob house building

One of the coolest things I have ever done was to take a course in building Cob houses on Mayne Island through Cobworks:

They are simple but very labor intensive.

I feel like I could build my own shelter if I ever really needed to.

 The work we achieved in four days.

The finished community garden centre.

The results can be quite glorious.

So organic. I would love to have my own.

Beautiful! That's good work for just 4 days! :)
Check out one of my cob ovens I built recently. It took me about a week to build even!

These are so cool. I love the garden structure. Yes, the one you also like. Can you tell me where it is located? I am in Oregon and would like to know more about this method.
