Old Cob Houses in New Zealand — 4 Comments

  1. People should not doubt on cob houses’ durability. You’ll be surprised knowing that the oldest cob house is still standing after 10,000 years of exposure to the elements. If we talk about their look and interior design, they can be designed even better than concrete homes.

  2. Im very interested in learnung Cob building. Is anyone up in the Wangarei area. I am moving there in a few months from Tauranga. Thanks Adrienne?

  3. Good story, thanks. When I was a high school I stayed a couple of nights in a cob house in Marlborough (Not the one shown). Cob is perfect in that area of NZ because the climate is temperate enough.
    I remember walking back inside after watching the sunset, when it was just getting cool, and hitting the wall of warm air at the door.
