Home Forums General Discussion Can you suggest a good place to “off grid?” Re: Can you suggest a good place to “off grid?”


From what I understand Cob was used in Great Brittain, on the british isles, where there is lots of rain, fog and humidity. I think protecting the walls from moisture is the main concern. More water, means more extremes to protect the walls. Be ware of cement based wall coverings as they trap moisture because they do not breath. Lime plaster do breath. Large eves or even a porch all the way around is one solution. If in a wet area you may want to consider a bit of lime or cement in the cob mix, though thats just my idea, have not tested it.
