Cob is a natural building material made from sand, clay, water, some kind of fibrous or organic material (straw) and earth. It can be used to create artistic, sculptural forms and has been revived in recent years. About 30 percent of the world’s population lives in earthen homes. Building with earth and other natural materials is becoming a solution to our world’s energy and consumption problems. Cob is dirt cheap, sustainable as a building material, and ecologically friendly.

Legtöbbször kertes házban, lakóparkban, panelben vagy könnyű szerkezetes házban gondolkodunk, ám akadnak egyéb megoldások is… ilyen lehet a földház vagy dombház, ami bizony nem új keletű dolog!

Cob alone has excellent thermal mass. But it is not the best at insulation, and eventually the heat or cold from one side will arrive at the other side. So in extreme climates pure cob should not be the only material you use.
