    Get a skidsteer and a concrete mixer. Buy local dirt/clay if you don't have enough available. Get some cheap sand. Some second rate straw would probably work. You probably could use shredded plastic as well. Pour a reinforced concrete footer.
    I think this is viable. I don't have enough time with my job to stomp mud all day.
    The only thing I haven't figured out is roofing. I want to go with metal roofing, but don't know the how to do the structural on top of the wall

    Building codes won't permit this is most parts of the USA.

    First, buy a property in UK that has a curtilage big enough to get permission to build in the garden. Alternatively, buy a property and knock it down.
    Sorry to be negative, but you wont be able to do this unless you have building permission which include building regs, which takes money. Considering the incredible benefits of cob, its beauty, low impact, high health, safe (fire proof), the list goes on, despite this, try and get planning permission.

    What about your planning permissions for the main house how much did that cost? Or are you sneaking the 4 year rule?

    I'm thinking of building a small cob house, and I'm considering blending sheep wool in instead of goat fur.
    I would love to hear opinions on this!

    Considering that the English are deliberately being replaced and extincted in their own land, I don't understand why they're worried about the future. They HAVE NO FUTURE. There IS NO FUTURE. That said, the Cob house is a wonderful idea, and it's most inspiring to see the building process.

    It is nice to see British examples of cob. I too was thinking of using a non-organic fiber material not straw. I am extremely sensitive to mold and cob would be good. Thanks!

    Idea, buy a foam cement mixer and modify it to mix up cobb. Then add in water activated ceramic then have the extruded cob be pressed into mold's to form different shape's used form building's even interlocking piece's that are then left to cure for 24 hour's. Or use ceramic that cure's with the use of an ultraviolet light source to mold and cure the cobb into building material's. All the building material's can later be crushed down and processed into new building material's. 😊

    europeans are now building mud houses….but if africans do it it is primitive…i see how this works..anyway i wish africans will go back to their roots which are mocked by these same white people instead of chasing a lifestyle they cant afford and end up living in slums….anyway thats a nice house

    Beautiful home and I plan on making a home like this too. In Michoacan or southern Mexico, I would connect a house like this to a generator powered by wood gas or biogas.
