This was mentioned in another thread and it looked pretty interesting so I thought I would start a thread about it.

Interesting. I've built 2 pallet-based sheds, and often wondered about whether you couldn't put light clay straw into the pallets and compress it, instead of only straw. I figured it would give you better thermal mass, and keep rodents out a bit more to have a clay slip on the straw.

Not having had experience with building or finishing with cob, would the pallets have enough "tooth" that the cob would really hold onto it? I rather thought you'd need to staple chicken wire to the surface or some such.

Another thing I like about this is the potential to use standard windows and have wooden window frames and casings. I'm not a huge fan of the "freeform" window shapes in most cob houses.
