    To expand another thread into a specific area of adobe type structures.

    There are a few places that offer workshops on alternative building techneques in Thailand. Here are a few (that are all connected to the same group)

    ok i got to admit i never really took them seriously, now i just read this.

    In Albany, Western Australia, the oldest rammed earth building is Strawberry Hill Farm built in 1830, rammed by hand with no cement added.


    This farmhouse remains perfectly sound and is classifed by the National Trust. A fine example of rammed earth's durability.

    N.B. "Strawberry Hill" had NO added Cement Stabilisation as todays R.E. buildings do.
    and this



    Program: A 3000 square foot single family residence overlooking the Pacific Ocean with emphasis on views and integration with the natural setting. Exterior walls are constructed of Rammed Earth, trellis of redwood, roofing is natural copper. Interiors are integrally colored plaster walls, colored concrete floors and countertops and a cast concrete fireplace at the center of the Living Room. The Master bath features a circular shower with a domed skylight.
    I take it you know quite a bit about earth building, well a lot more than me anyway, i just use concrete, if you do the course could you post about it on here?

    Don't know much besides what I've been reading on the net, but I'm practically minded. When I get some time I'll do a course. I'll post some other website links to building rammed earth etc if I can find the links later.
