The Rammed Earth House: Rediscovering the Most Ancient Building Material Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Humans have been using earth as a primary building material for more than ten thousand years. Rammed earth, as practiced today, involves tamping a mixture of earth, water, and a little cement into wooden forms to create thick, sturdy masonry walls. Earthbuilt homes offer their inhabitants a powerful sense of security and well-being and have a permanence and solidity altogether lacking in so many of today's modular, pre-fab houses.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [264]-265) and index.
