The mud and wood house is located in the northwest of Ireland. When the site was excavated for the foundations of the building, this sub-soil was used to build the south and west-facing external walls plus all of the internal walls. The mud was mixed with straw to create cob, an ancient and enduring form of monolithic earth construction.
Cob is resistant to water, earthquakes and is very cheap. It has exceptional strength. In the U.S., Canada, Germany, in the context of growing interest for a healthier lifestyle, these homes are becoming increasingly popular.
