A $500 tiny cob house

A $500 tiny cob house

in Gislev, Denmark. Bjarne is a natural builder who specialises in Rorvøv (an interwoven reed lath), clay plastering, cob and straw bale building, thatching and masonry stoves. Just about all those skills have gone into making this beautiful little house (10 m2 or 107 sq.ft.) for his son Mikkel. It's built entirely from local materials even down to the exterior plaster of clay with horse droppings and a final coat of lime. Inside you will find a heated sleeping bench and a very happy boy, now a bit older.
