[GSBN] missing cob link

 Good evening Graeme,

The pictures  of distressed cob buildings tell a sorry tale   and one I
suspect is not the whole story  for example  what have the walls been
"painted" with in recent decades ?, have the ground levels been altered ?
And is the natural ventilation maintained or has central heating  g heat
pump been installed ?    The thoughts are multitude and extensive

I still have faith in earth building     AND  like your pithy  re vertical
roofing  !  !  !    Especially those wanting little or no eaves to go use a
different material

Have a great eve and tomorrow ­ they are what we live in (the now  as our
husky constantly remind us to do)

Cheers

Ian
