Cob Interiors



Earthy and warm, the inside of cob homes exude an incomparable charm.

Hand built cob home in Texas by Gary Zuker. 
Gary (a computer engineer) had no experience building homes yet desired a weekend getaway home with a timeless feel. The 900 square foot structure cost $2,520 in materials: 250 bales of straw ($375), 6 cubic yards of blue clay ($25), 60 tons of limestone boulders ($120), and 50 planed pine timbers ($2000). motherearthliving.com

Cob home outside of Austin, Texas. Built by Gary Zuker. 'All the windows in the cottage are either salvaged or handmade by Gary and his wife, Delores. Gary “engineered” the home’s ­scissor-truss system of loblolly pine by choosing boards that looked right and fit them together. He counted on the strength of the cob walls to allow him some breathing room.' Read Gary's thoughts on a 'timeless house' here: placepatterns.org

Actually Gary used some plywood forms to hold the cob in place during the build, so this home would be considered a loose slip straw. A must read by Gary Zuker.placepatterns.org

Gary points out that an arch in a stone fireplace is necessary to honor masonry's history. A straight top on a stone fireplace defies gravity and it can be deduced that a modern steel lintel was used to hold up the stone. If you desire a timeless home this is a must read by Gary Zuker. placepatterns.org

Cob home Mayne Island, BC.
The major construction of this cob was completed in the summer of 1999. Pat Hennebery had the excavation and foundation ready for a 3 week workshop led by Ianto Evans and Elke Cole of CCC. The roof was on by fall and the following spring saw the interior finishing completed by Tracy, Elke and Patrick. Hilde's project was the first cob fully permitted as a house in Canada. The roof is totally load bearing on the cob walls. The house is 600 sq.ft on 2 floors and is fully plumbed and wired. Finished cob and roof construction costs were approximately $56,000. cobworks.com
