Rammed Earth Homes
We love working with raw and natural materials to create custom homes. We team with our rammed earth specialist to produce a rammed earth timber frame home with superior energy efficiency.
The many advantages of building with rammed earth include superior thermal mass, temperature and noise control, strength and durability, low maintenance, fire proofing, load bearing and pest deterrence, as well as its beauty and the pleasure of building with a natural and environmentally sound material.
A natural living environment that brings serenity, texture, sustainability and beauty to buildings and their residents. Rammed earth is a construction material which is architectural in itself. We work closely with owners and architects to have rammed earth walls constructed to the desired outcome.
Rammed earth adds form and function to its environment and grounds buildings into their landscape. Building technology in this century calls for sustainability combined with aesthetic appeal. Rammed earth is clearly a material which provides both.
A true expression of the landscape they rest on, rammed-earth homes are constructed of compacted soil molded in plywood forms. A robust and energy-efficient material, rammed earth also has a striking, striated appearance, taking on natural color variations. The residences below demonstrate how the impressive building technique has been adapted to environments all over the world.
