At the end of the 7 days you will know all you need to be able to go off and build a cob cottage. This intensive course will be hands-on, and you will learn every aspect of the construction of a cob building. From locating and testing the right kinds of soils for cob, to different ways of mixing it, wall building techniques and all the sculptural details. Get practical experience with windows, doors, arches, niches and roofs. Lectures and practical exercises will cover siting, passive solar design, drainage, heating, plumbing and wiring, basic carpentry, natural roofing, and flooring.

Through the length and intensity of this course it tends to create a real sense of community between the participants and team, so if you are interested in building a house, and want a life-changing inspirational immersion into the world of natural building this really is a course not to be missed.

Concessions for group bookings are possible.

The Hollies team have built several family homes and other buildings with Cob and have been teaching Natural Building with The Cob Cottage Company for many years.
