  Cob Building

Although this method has its supporters, cob walls do not generally have great insulation vales and can require extra insulation in order to meet current building regulations.

The clay cob walls bear the weight of the roof, and the building process is slow to allow one layer of cob time to dry before adding the next course. Wall construction usually begins in late spring and can last for many months.

For the reasons set out above, ABC has not ventured into cob building.
