STORYBOOK COB
Cob is an old method of construction that can be used to create very unique organic structures. This particular example, called Cob Cottage, is located on Mayne Island, a quiet and relaxed landscape in the British Columbia Gulf Islands. It has been reported that it is the first home crab in Canada to go through the building process.

Cob uses a mixture of clay, sand, straw and water to form load-bearing walls. Structures of logs are manually made with the mixture laid in layers and allowed to dry. This process is ideal for creating curved walls, rounded openings, embedded show windows and sculptural decoration. A shell building requires a lot of physical work, but the materials are cheap, so it's a way to get a very low-cost home, as long as you do not pay someone else to do it.

Cob Cottage was designed by Cobworks on Mayne Island in collaboration with Cob Cottage Company based in Oregon. The two-storey core of the house is a round salon with douglas fir trees that lead to the bedroom above. The curved walls are covered by a rounded roof, which rests on the bedroom by a tree trunk with a natural slope used as a beam.

The main roof is turned on one side to house the entrance foyer and the bathroom. On the other hand, a separate ceiling covers the kitchen with the custom curved cabin and the adjoining dining room. There are many other touches of usual woodworking throughout the exhibition, including handrails and many handmade pieces of furniture. The cottage has about 600 ft2 (55.7 m2) of floor space above the two levels.

If you want to live life in a cottage, Cob Cottage is available for rental vacations via Airbnb. Have a nice weekend!
