How to Build with Cob (Adobe)

First, sift some dirt. High clay content and low organic matter is best; Tucson dirt is just about right.

Then add lots of water and straw and knead it like dough. With your feet.

In a bathtub.

You will get very dirty.

Lather it on a framework such as straw bales or reed mats.
