built at the cob cottage

Built at the Cob Cottage Complex in Oregon. This side faces the dawn; the other side faces dusk. The walls are built using clay-soil dug out of the ground, with sand & straw added as needed, and the walls support all of the loads of the building. This is a high thermal-mass material, not an insulator. That means it works well for exterior walls in temperate ad warm climates and works well as a trombe wall (solar heat storage wall) for well-insulated buildings in cold or mixed climates.
