Visting the all cob ecovillage "cobville" in coquille, oregon. Including the tour guide Ianto Evans, author of "The Hand Sculpted House" - home of the "cob cottage company". I have never seen so much cob before. Cob homes. Cob ovens. Standalone cob walls. Rocket mass heaters made from cob. Cob benches for sitting and cob workbenches. Cob art. Cob floors. Cob beds. This part of the tour shows off about eight cob homes and the second part shows about four more.
One eco building has a cob rumford fireplace that is clear to see. Another has a cob rumford fireplace - but the video does not show it clearly.
The video whizzes by a cob oven at one point.
Lots of green roofs.
There is a good example of a heat trap.
Permaculture courses are taught here.
