Setting the standard for modern cob construction - from design, engineering, and building code compliance, to sculpting beautiful structures

Cob - a mix of clay, sand, and straw - is one of the most popular and well-known natural building methods. Yet cob is often difficult to permit and can be used in inappropriate ways due to a lack of sound engineering and design information. Recent research and a newly developed building code promise to make cob building more accessible than ever.

Essential Cob Construction sets the new standard for cob construction. Incorporating rigorous, up-to-date engineering and building science and decades of practical lessons learned, coverage includes:

  • Appropriate use of cob in different climates and contexts
  • Thermal performance and moisture management
  • Structural and architectural design considerations, including fire and earthquake resistance data from extensive laboratory testing
  • Hands-on cob construction, including mix design, testing, manual and mechanical mixing, wall building, strong connections with foundations, roofs, and other structural elements, and finishing options
  • Building code development and the permitting process for cob
  • Planning, budgeting, and quality control
  • The complete Cob Construction Appendix of the International Residential Code.

Essential Cob Construction is required reading for engineers, architects, designers, contractors, and owner-builders working with this ancient, aesthetically pleasing, low-carbon building material.
