Rammed Earth Technique Developed by Mrinmayee Bangalore — 9 Comments

  1. We perform the structural engineering on Rammed Earth, Earthbag and Straw Bale in different States across the US. Green building projects are becoming more and more popular. We are also seeing an increase in solar systems, jet stoves and other energy saving technics being employed. More and more municipalities are beginning to understand and accept these green building alternatives. Now I call that progress. Very few engineering firms work with Rammed Earth, Earthbag, Cob, Straw Bale and others. You should know we work with them a lot and we carry licenses in 46 States. See us at http://www.structure1.com, thanks.

  2. A couple of years ago I was thinking seriously about using rammed earth to build a small test structure. (I was going to build a cob oven, on top) But I decided to use earthbags instead, since the “forms” are so much easier to deal with than normal rammed earth. This technique fixes that potential difficulty, so that is awesome.

  3. Thanks Owen. ANYTHING other than the standard building process and procedure is a blessing. Better and wiser building techniques.
