I'm currently building a cob round house in Zimbabwe. I took part in a natural building workshop in south africa and I'm now finishing the stone stem wall before starting on the cob. This is my first time building and I'm really enjoying it but I have little support in the way of cob experts in my area. Anyone with any help and admvice please have a look at my blog on the building process http://dancelikeanelephant.blogspot.com . I Have had to adapt to What materials are locally available my main concern is termites.
The dream we have is to build a permaculture homestead in an area next to a national park where there is conflict between humans and wildlife and try and help design simple solutions to these problems. anyone with any experience with this would be great to hear from you too.
