Cob and Earth Buildings

A considerable proportion of our time is spent dealing with cob and earth buildings both old and new and we have built up a reputation as a leading specialist of this form of construction.  This website has a separate set of pages covering this subject with sections on "what is cob?", existing cob and new cob and earth buildings


Occasionally the worst can happen and we are not brought in to see the building before it can be saved.
