[Cob] California and "Green Building Code"Damon Howell dhowell at pickensprogress.com

I seriously doubt I'll see a cob building code in my lifetime. Why not? We all know the answer; because there's no wood, concrete, steel, fiberglass, or asphalt being sold. Don't you think it's odd that those industries write the code? We're interested in cob for different reasons, but usually cobbers understand there is something fundamentally wrong with the building code; it prohibits the use of any native material. Build a homestead, legally, from scratch with the materials you have on hand? That is absurd. You can't possibly make a safe building with cob. I tell you, those darn stick framed houses are crapolla and don't even deserve to be compared to the strength of cob. But we don't have numbers!!!! Where are the numbers from the seismic test they done in Vancouver at the university? Those facts are what we need when we go to the building department, but mysteriously they can't be found.
