This quaint cob cottage in Deddington, England cost almost nothing to build. The clay for the cob came from the site and the long straw for the thatch came from a few fields away. Poplars were planted by Michael 8 yrs before they were felled for joists. Reclaimed floorboards & windows were donated. Water comes from an old well and a spring. Apart from some additional straw and thatching pins it cost nothing to build and used no power tools in its construction.
