Extra Video: Cob Mixing Basics
A nice example of mixing cob using a tarp. It's basically mud, a little water and straw mixed together. Mixing in a tarp makes it easier to get the level of moisture uniform through the whole mix (you pull up the sides of the tarp rolling the mix in on itself). Balls of this are pushed into the walls of this very small structure. You could build a chook house this way.
