Rammed Earth Wall
How To Pour A Rammed Earth Floor/Adobe Floor by Tony Sirna At Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, we’ve found our earthen floor/adobe floor hybrid to be a cheap, easy to install, durable ecological flooring solution.

Rammed earth buildings last indefinitely and results in energy-efficient buildings that keep temperature fluctuations to a minimum.
