The rantings of a curious man in a very strange world

While planning out designs for the honeycomb, my girlfriend brought up the material cob for use in building the structure. I had heard of cob before but hadn't looked into its uses. For those of you who haven't heard of cob, it is an ancient building material that uses all natural materials to create a durable mixture that in some cases, can last centuries.
Between the progress I've been making raising money for this project, as well as this new idea to both increase the strength of the building as well as reduce costs, I may be able to move into the construction phase in the next year or so.
