It cost Ziggy less than $500 to build the cob walls for his 200 square foot home in 2008-2009, with the clay from the Dancing Rabbit land and straw from local farmers. He learned that in Missouri the cob home is not efficient to heat since the walls remain so cold in the winter temperatures, and warm air contact with cold walls causes condensation issues. The book The Hand Sculpted House explains how to use insulation to counter this. He has since built, with his partner April, a large new timber frame home and straw bale home.
