The ancient method of cob building uses a simple mixture of clay sub-soil, aggregate, straw and water to create solid structural walls built without shuttering or forms, onto a stone plinth.

It is now undergoing a renaissance as an 'eco-friendly' building material because of its amazing 'green' credentials. "Building with Cob" shows how to apply this ancient technique in a wide variety of contemporary situations, covering everything from design and siting, mixing, building walls, fireplaces, ovens and floors, lime and other natural finishes, and gaining planning permission and building regulation approval.

It also explains in detail how to sensitively restore an old cob structure.

This book is a step-by-step guide, lavishly illustrated with over 300 colour photos and 85 diagrams.
