|Mayne Island Cob House|
I have just returned to work after a wonderful rollercoaster 15 months of maternity leave. So for the last week we decided to rent a small cottage in the middle of no where and it was total bliss. It was a small one bedroom barn conversion just outside of Llanidloes in Wales and it totally won our hearts. We are both now dreaming of a simpler life in the country.... so expect loads of tiny country cottages coming up on Moon to Moon!
For starters I have found this place...
This beautiful 600 ft2 Cob house in Mayne Island, was supposedly the first Cob house in Canada. Although small it is perfectly formed! I just love that warm wooden ceiling in the bedroom..... wouldn't the rain would sound so lovely up there?
Not only are Cob houses such as this eco-friendly but they are also pretty cheap to construct, the original construction cost of this beautiful home was around $56,000 (designed by Cobworks.)
