We’re finding on our cob building workshops that we are getting as many people now interested in building their own garden or home office as actual cob house.
A cob office at home makes complete sense as it’s so cheap to build and so beautiful to work in – warm in winter and cool in summer, breathable, curvaceous, unique, relaxing, and grounding.
For a garden studio or office you usually don’t even need any planning permission. We’ll talk you through all that though on the cob workshop.
Come on our 4 day cob building workshop this summer and learn to build your dream garden studio or home office.

We’ve just had the most fantastic time building an authentic Anglo-Saxon longhouse with the children at West Earlham Junior School in Norwich. Kate worked with them for a fortnight and finished the build with a reed thatch with turf ridge. If you’d like your school to build their own Anglo-Saxon house too, please call us anytime to ask more on 01493 369952.
