Rammed earth housing

Active Member

Has anyone in the homesteading lifestyle ever built or have someone else build a rammed earth home?   How do you find someone in your area who does this sort of build?   How rare is this type of housing and are there any push backs against these builds?  I'd love to know. Thnaks.

I was building a frame house on tamped ground a year ago. My father and I made a pile-screw foundation into the rammed earth. Then we purchased sheet materials on this site and bars. The house was recently completed. I did not observe shrinkage on the ground, since the house weighs less than a brick one.
