"Thank-you! I just finished your Cob Builders Handbook and I have never been so fired up as I am now about a future cob home. A well written book; I could not put it down until I finished reading it."
David B. Wilson--Jan 22-1999

"Hi Becky Bee-
Just wanted to say my husband and I read your handbook about two years ago and are now very close to finished with our cob house, 800 square ft. round, 32 ft. diameter, in northern carolinas. Your book was our only instruction in cobbing, and it is so well written, I feel like I owe you a great debt. It has been a tremendous amount of work, but fun too!"
Thanks-Rebekah (and Stephen)" 09-04-2001

"Dear Becky Bee- I was so excited about cob houses and talked about it so much my father bought me your book for my birthday. I'm going to build a cob house because of you!!! I found you and your book to be nothing short of delightful."
Eve Baird

"Your book is by far the most empowering book relating to Shelter-building. Perhaps because I'm a woman & you're speaking/thinking women's language! I just bought the Cob Builders Handbook and I love it. I must know more !!!!"
Sue Cartwright
