Rammed Earth Houses in Ghana — 7 Comments

  1. In the lowlands of the Philippines we have a small water well. The water temperature is at 28C or 82f year around. Pumping the cooler air would be advantageous on hot days when temperatures reach 35+ C or over 90f.

    On cool days, when temperatures are lower than 28C the well water feels warm. The coolest weather I have seen is 25C.

    • It’s really interesting and useful by using the comoneners and natural materals such as mud to reput it in a moden way of building.
      Thanks so much.

  2. Very interesting being based in northern Ghana. I’m curious about the digging though. Ghana has very heavy clay soil throughout many parts of the country and having a submerged home seems like a bad idea to me. I’m actually in Accra now and if I have time tomorrow to check them out before returning north, will post my impressions here.
