With this way of building – post and beam – the cob is only used for infill. The poles and beams carry all the load, just like a log cabin. So I then started with the roof construction.
I used planks from electrical cable drums as load bearers before covering them with plywood, then plastic sheeting in big overlapping sections to water proof before the soil and grass layer.
