Tour one of the most famous (and beautiful!) cob buildings in the world! The Unique Cob Cottage is on Mayne Island, BC and is the 4th most wish-listed property on Airbnb.
Unique Cob Cottage on Airbnb:
The Cob Cottage is a fully permitted, 2-storey, load-bearing cob structure that was built by Cobworks in 1999.
Cob is an environmentally friendly mixture of clay, sand, and straw that can be used in many different climates to create green buildings with organically shaped walls.
To learn more about cob as a natural building material, check out the video we share a couple of months ago:
This cottage is on the grid with a well, septic tank, and hydro power. They use a woodstove for heat.
We felt super lucky to be able to meet Alexis and her family, and tour their cob cottage. It’s an incredibly beautiful space and we hope you enjoy checking it out.
It’s nice to see so much interest in green buildings, and to see that this cob structure has been standing for almost 20 years and still looks brand new!
Maintenance on the cob house is done by Bryce from Dreamweavers Collective:
