About the Author

Adam Weismann and Katy Bryce undertook an apprenticeship in natural building with the Cob Cottage Company in Oregon, USA. On their return to the UK they started their company 'Cob in Cornwall'. They have built and restored many cob buildings including two-storey houses, small studios and garden rooms, outside courtyards and fireplaces, and earth ovens. In 2003 they won a 'Pioneers to the Nation' award from the Queen. They live in Manaccan, Cornwall.


"This has got to be the most practical and beautifully illustrated books on earth building ever published!" --Keith Hall, editor, Building for a Future magazine
