[Cob] a question for everyoneDamon Howell dhowell at pickensprogress.com

David: What are the advantages of using cob over adobe or adobe over cob?? Damon: I see that the biggest advantage cob has over adobe is that it is monolithic which means it doesn't have fracture lines (as Shannon pointed out) which will bring the building down in an earthquake. Essentially the same materials/mix though. You can mix and build right away with cob, eliminating that untimely drying process in adobe. Cob is faster if you factor in the drying of the adobes. If you read the New Mexico adobe building code, it doesn't provide much information that pertains to cob, but it does give good testing procedures which can be applied to cob as well. Damon
