The Cob House

More than £1000

My shed is a great escape and is used by myself and friends for a drumming circle. The grand children also like to play in there and tell stories.

I am 48 years old (female) and challenged myself to build a cob house in my garden after being inspired by your program. I designed the house myself, laid out the markings and got set on digging the foundations. A perforated pipe and sump was added and then I started building the footings with York stone. I reclaimed stained glass windows, reused sleepers from the garden and started to cob around them. The cob was made from the soil dug out of the foundations. I was able to complete the foundations in the first summer, only using hand tools, built the cob walls during the second summer and completed the living roof on the third and final year. The cob has been rendered with lime and created my own green man relief. Inside there is a wood burning stove, and wall decorations.
