Hi David, I live in Middle Georgia and there is a belt of sand that runs accross middle georgia. I live on that belt. I have clay hauled in, as well as sometimes using my pickup to get a load. Good news is that cob is a majority of sand! thus for every two shovels of clay, you can use 8 shovels of local sand! (amounts vary with purity of both.) the cement and sand can be used to make your foundations with! pat Mauk Georgia http://www.gnat.net/~goshawk -----Original Message----- From: David Knowlton [mailto:pilot1ab80 at hotmail.com] Sent: Tuesday, November 06, 2001 2:50 PM To: coblist at deatech.com Subject: Hello, I live in Tampa, Florida. We have mostly sand for earth, and dark organic matter mixed in where there are trees. Do I need to 'cheat' and add portland cement to make cobs? Would I need to have clay trucked in?
