However, another aspect is that it would be in a fairly rainy and cloudy place, with lots of wind... Could it be possible? I know i'd probably have to hire out because brick roofs are hard to master (probably wont stop me from trying and failing anyways lol), but was just wondering if it would even be physically possible before i start making the plans.
If that's not possible, would an alternative be to just use cob itself? if you created a good enough lime seal (maybe even tadelakt) and made sure that it had spectacular rain run off, would it hold up or would it simply wind up disintegrating?
