Build your eco home office from cob

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.

Did you know the Anglo-Saxons are alive and well in Norwich?

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.
