Moving onto a boat was the result of: wanting to downsize, needing a smaller monthly overhead, desiring to live some place cool. Prior to deciding to live on a boat, I had the strongest urge to build a cob house. They are artful, affordable, small, and just…well, adorable. Yahoo! just posted an article about smaller homes, and it reminded me of my love of cob houses.
Why didn’t I build a cob house instead of moving to a boat? Time and money. The home itself is very cheap, usually well under $50,000, but I’d need to build it somewhere, and I don’t have property. Since cob houses are do-it-yourself projects, it would also take a year or more to complete. But that didn’t stop me from dreaming up what my ideal house may one day look like. For now, though, I thought I’d share some cool photos of cob homes.
