Above the entryway to their house, Melanie and Jeff embedded pieces of driftwood into the cob.

In the Spritzer-Leyba house, we are obsessing over cob: buying books on cob construction and getting excited about building a cob house of our own in the next couple of years.


Great shot! I spent some time to figure out which way is up, though :)

Thanks! Believe it or not, I am staring up at it from in front of the door (that's the metal roof up there too!).

cob construction.... loads of fun. I like the fact that the imperfection gives the structure its individuality and beauty. Good luck and have fun with it !!

thanks! i especially like the bits of straw here and there dotting the outside of the structure.
