You would of course remember sheddie Thommo he of the Rammed Earth eco shed from 2009.
What is rammed earth I hear you ask – well Rammed earth is the process of compacting dirt to form walls this is what Michael says about his project
When I first stumbled upon rammed earth, I was no eco warrior. The most I ever did to
save the planet was recycle my empty beer cans. But building with earth turns out to be a
very sustainable thing to do.
The rammed earth method is a very clean process that produces smooth, solid walls that
are plenty strong enough to fit windows and hang doors in the same way as today’s
modern buildings. I decided to regard it as a challenge, a test of character, a chance to
avoid the heavy cost to the environment of building with bricks; but most of all, I realised
that it was going to be dirt cheap.
