Rammed Earth Material

Rammed Earth Material

A rammed earth house is constructed using a mixture of clay, earth, rock, sand, silt and sometimes cement. A mixture of these ingredients is placed between framed forms and then rammed using a mechanical rammer. After compaction, the framework is removed leaving a uniquely beautiful rammed earthen wall. One of the benefits of this type of construction is the excellent thermal mass that is created leading to stabilized heating and cooling.

  • Home Building
  • Decorative Walls
