I cut down an 8in oak tree about 16ft long for my roof beam. Im letting it dry.

Getting deeper !

I added 2x6's above each window to hold the wall and weight of the the oak beam, that way the weight of the roof is distributed among the wall.

I found this buried not far from the cob house, and now its going to be a small window.

Time for the windows . I used 2x4s and made square frames . I have nails sticking out of both sides to make sure the windows fit nicely in the walls.

Random things are fun to add.

I poke my fingers in the top of the walls to help the next layer of cobs fit.

I added two vent pipes in the back wall. I used 2in. PVC pipe.

I decided to cover the whole thing.
Always be prepared for rain.

At first i just covered the walls but i soon discovered that i was just creating a pool for the rain water.
