I’ve loved cob houses for a long time. They feel so natural, and look so comfortable. I luv the stairs on this and just the warmth the wood adds to it.
I love the curving organic details that are possible when building with cob.

A site offering classes on building a cob house. Seems like this is coming back into style? In any case, a more organic living arrangement could be interesting, at least visually.
