A Cob House You Can Build

Ziggy’s cob house at the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage is complete. He’s also posted a lot of detailed information about the construction process, cost, and sweat-equity required to build such a house on his Building a cob house blog. The house is about 200 square feet and includes a reciprocal roof and rocket stove. Ziggy estimates that it took about nine months of full-time work to build the house. His total cost was about $4000 but $1000 of that was labor so you could actually build this house for $3000 if you did all the work yourself. Take a look at Ziggy’s cob house, aka GOBCOBATRON.
