Isles of Scilly cob building

To say Kate was excited when she got a call from a family on the Isles of Scilly who wanted her help with their cob building project is an understatement. The Isles of Scilly is Kate’s favourite place on earth!

Kate headed over to St Mary’s in January for initial discussions and to dig up some of the soil and experiment with test bricks to discover the perfect cob mix.

Kate enjoyed the most wonderful hospitality eating local island produce and she was amazed at the all the flowers out on the island even in January.

She worked with her clients to dig up some sub soil and together they made a series of test bricks. The perfect mix has been discovered. Now Kate can’t wait to go back and start building with them later in the year.
