I no longer blog on this site. You can now find me, my general blogs, and the work I am doing researching my forthcoming book on imagination, on my new blog.

Our Cob House – The Hollies (2004-05)

Our Cob House – built at The Hollies 2003-04


This project was to be my family’s home. It was truly a labour of love and probably the most beautiful thing I ever made (apart from my children). I can’t really do it much justice here, the best place to find out more about it is through the detailed Building Diary we kept during construction, which starts here. Here is a picture of my family in the house about 3 hours before it all went up in smoke.
