Christopher: ...after seeing many pictures of old cob buildings in wet climates...I have begun to question the common wisdom about the absolute necessity of overhangs. Damon: I have noticed the same thing. Many of the old buildings (actually, most I've seen) doesn't have but a couple inches of overhang. I would imagine you'd have to replaster quite a bit that way. But it's the English who say all a cob house needs is a good hat and good boots. I think a large overhang doesn't really mean it's gonna protect the top of the wall though.
