Ty Pennington Gets a Lesson in Building with Cob (VIDEO)

Posted By admin On August 4, 2009 @ 3:37 am In Green Building | No Comments

Ty Pennington, host of the outrageously popular ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover, recently took a trip through the UK to explore different home-building techniques. Luckily for us, he ran into Katy Bryce [1] and Adam Weismann [2], authors of Building with Cob: A Step-by-Step Guide. In the video I’ve linked below, Adam—amid a circus of children, clay, and playground equipment—discusses with Ty the various benefits of building with cob. Ty gets it. He provides the following great quote.

“Wow. [It's] interesting that something that comes from earth…soil…dirt, is actually more intelligent way to go than technology.”

Boom. Are you listening ABC? How about a new show…Extreme Home Greenover hosted by Katy Bryce and Adam Weismann. Rip down your toothpicks-wrapped-in-plastic-house! Put up cob! It’s got legs baby! Legs!
