I am very new and my apologies if I have posted this in the wrong place. I am not only new to this forum/site,  but I am also new to the idea of working with what I have to create a better environment in a pre-existing home that is not in good shape. I am pulling down a deck that is very brittle and rotted. It in its place, I would like to put in a simple and low patio but I am interested in making it out of Cob. I would like to know if is this possible or recommended and if it is, are there instructions anywhere on the site on how to do this? It is a large area, approximately 16x12 feet.  I have watched many videos and read as much as I can online but cannot seem to find a direct answer on whether or not a patio built of this material would withstand the weather changes.  Thank you in advance for any help!

I was wondering what direction you eventually took with this project. I am looking to create a large patio area that is not covered. I am replacing where wood use to be and cannot afford the lumber. I live in the Midwest of the United States where four seasons are present in a fairly humid area. Did you ultimately choose to use cob or did you add cement?
