I had thought that something like that was what the Evans-Roy experiment tended to show. I wonder if it means that a cob-like mix will do better for my log cabin chinking. I'll never know, because the problems could stem from the green wood continuing to dry. Worth a try in either case. .................

We have added about 5% lime to the cob for extra strength and short of taking a sledge hammer to the wall (I dare anyone to do that to their home) it has bonded well witht he wood. VERY hard and quick setting as a mortar. We also haven't had a lot of shrinkage. Time will tell as to durabilty. _________________________________________________________________ Express yourself instantly with MSN Messenger!
