125mm Cob Block – Corners

Building design often incorporates numerous 90 degree angles. Corners of the building itself, window and door openings and so on.

Cavity Walling (125mm cob blocks)

Wall thickness = 350mm (excluding plasters and renders)   Traditionally we can find cob walling to have no cavity and that they were/are predominantly constructed as solid walling.
