Hi there Chris, thanks for coming out to the forums.

I live in the Pacific Northwest, and our characteristic long damp humid winters can cause problems with long term durability of structures. It seems like earthen and cob based construction would be even more susceptible to these problems. Do you have any wisdom or common mistakes you have seen that you think would make a difference in long term structural durability in our climate?
