Beautiful, Natural, Durable
Benches, Ovens, Sheds, Greenhouses, Cabins,
as well as the Home of your Dreams...
We can build whatever you need, at half the cost of conventional building. Not only will it look and feel beautiful (after all, it is hand sculpted exactly the way you want it), it will last as long as you keep a functioning roof over it, at least 300 years and likely many more.
For some, the best part is the lack of maintenance. For others, it's the purity of material...this is the true non-toxic home.
You can rest assured knowing your future generations will have a lovely home and that you had the foresight to provide it for them!
Cob has so many advantages, we'll list just a few:
* a test cob building was able to withstand 9.0 on the Richter scale for 20 seconds without collapsing. The same building easily endured 7.2 with minimal cracking. Every building and situation is different so no guarantees are being made, neither expressly nor implied.
Our Technique is the Key to Our Speed
We use Production Cob to build your structures, which is another step up in speed from Fast Cob! which already is 10-30x faster than "traditional west coast" cob.
Two people can build and finish a 400 sq.ft. cottage from scratch in a month. A 1000 sq.ft. split level house can be built to lock-up in four months. A bench and oven can be built and finished in a weekend.
It's that fast.
Other benefits of having us build your dream include:
Although it is very unlikely that you or your descendants will ever want to demolish your new structure, you can rest assured knowing that no one will ever need a cavalcade of dump trucks to remove it.
Cob simply melts into the earth when the roof is removed.
Any way you look at it, Production Cob is the superior way to build... today, and for tomorrow.
Gorgeous. Sustainable. Functional. Easy. Healthy. Built to Last. That's our style of Cob...Fast Cob!
