One cob at a time.

Windows in!

Electric line in!

This lightbulb will be covered by a cob "sconce" that will direct the light down onto the path as one enters the building.

Utilizing the amazing sculptural properties of cob, we are turning this ordinary double-pane sash into something a little more interesting for the eyes.

Last night the temperature got down to below 20, and the winds gusted to over 40 mph, so we covered up the cottage well with pink foam insulation, strawbales, and tarps to keep out as much of the cold as possible (the cob is still fresh, and so has a lot of moisture in it, so it's best to avoid letting it freeze for too long.
