Sometimes…

Sometimes dogs are very messy beings…

Cob Hut

Saturday, September 20th, 2008 by Marie

We have started building our first cob hut.

Cob is a mixture of clay, dirt, pine straw, sawdust and a bit of water.  We get sawdust from a woodmill in a pueblo nearby, and the clay, dirt and pine straw come from the Bosque.  Cob is much like formed adobe.  We mix the ingredients together on the ground (sometimes with our feet!), and then sew lumps of cob onto the existing structure.

Every hut will have a bed, a nice desk and a chimenea (small fire place).  They should be very well insulated and comfortable for our visitors.

Here are Dani and Adrian working with cob:
