Cob building in Pune, India??

6 Feb

Hi Pablo, What do you think about cob building in Pune, India, where there are torrential downpours (think sideways rain) for four months of monsoon??  I had previously asked you about straw bale, but we don’t have a baler available, so now I am wondering about cob.  The soil is red like at Ananda Village, but I have been told there is no clay in it.  How do you determine that?  And how important is the clay?  Thanks!  dhuti at Ananda Pune community
