Cob Cottage Company - Grounds Tour 8/2010

As a follow up to my post on the $1,000 House workshop at the Cob Cottage Company I've got a ton of pictures of the land and all of their other buildings.  This is a BIG post and it's a tad extensive, if not excessive, but I can't be the only person out there that needs to see everything I possibly can when it comes to cob and natural building.

The pictures are ordered as if we were doing a walkthrough, more or less.  We'll go from the driveway right up to the gargantuan maple tree at the top of the property.

Spectacular Vernacular

In the spirit of more book sharing, I thought I'd post some pictures I took from the interior of Spectacular Vernacular.  I took them while at the Cob Cottage Company, under the impression that the book was out of print and I'd never find it again, but it turns out only the hardcover is out of print and the softcover is around $25 on Amazon.  Oh well.

I just sort of skimmed through and took pictures of all of the exciting looking buildings.  If you dig African architecture make sure you buy the book!

Cob Cottage Company - $1,000 House workshop - 8/2010

Back in August of 2010 I went to a workshop at the Cob Cottage Company.  It was their three week long, comprehensive cob course, The $1,000 House.  While I was there I took more pictures than I needed to, mostly for myself, but also with the intention of sharing with others.  So here you are!  Check it out to see the full build from start to finish and get an idea of what goes on there.
