Earthen Floors: A Modern Approach to an Ancient Practice [Book Review] — 2 Comments

  1. Feels weird saying this but I’ve never experienced an earthen floor. I would love to build and experience living with an earthen floor. This book looks like a good resource so I added it to my wish list. Thanks.

    • They’re one of the most practical, comfortable floors. This has always been my top choice for dirt cheap building. Extremely low cost. Super beautiful (looks sort of like rich brown leather). They can last for centuries. Non-toxic, do-it-yourself friendly. There are some real earthen floor experts in Crestone, Colorado where I used to live. Lots of great examples in the area.
