Hilde’s Cob Cabin is made out of cob, a mixture of sand clay and straw, and is only 600 square feet with two floors and full electricity and plumbing. The interior is beautiful with a Southwestern feel to it and a beautiful staircase that leads to the loft upstairs.

Cob wants to be organically shaped...curvy walls being stronger and all... But know the properties of your materials! Cob is classified as a "thermal mass" material, which means it wants to come to equilibrium temperature between inside and outside. It is NOT an insulator (which keeps the hot side hot and the cold side cold).
