  1. what is the cost of overall project .Can I get any source to contact in detail about the respective work.

    • No contact info available. You’ll have to figure it out somehow. Experiment with lime and ash, etc.

  2. Clay bricks can give cool n provid low temperature in the house ..is this rha brick can able to give such cool condition in house at warm period?

  3. I want to start a rice hush ash brick project in Nepal since fly ash is not available over here and to save the enviourment and as well as it is a highly earthquake effected zone I need a project support with the machineries to start this project in a commercial way.
    Also please inform whether Electrical consoling can be done smoothly by using this bricks or not.
    Awaiting for your help and support.

    • Bricks are brittle and therefore prone to earthquake damage. They are not recommended for earthquake zones such as Nepal. The fact they’re made from sustainable materials is beside the point in your case.

      • Then which will be the suitable eco friendly low cost building material best for earthquake prone area like Nepal. Where fly ash is not available.

        Further have you any idea of making houses with Bamboos and Plastic waste,used in Brazil. If so then from where I can avail the Technology.

        • Earthbag is best for Nepal and similar regions in my opinion. Search this blog for keyword Nepal to read about all the projects going on there. Good Earth Nepal.org has free training in Kathmandu.

      • Dear Sir,
        I HAVE SEEN YOUR CRAFTSMAN HOUSE WITH BAMBOO AND PLASTIC BOTTLE. IF I WANT TO MAKE SUCH A HOUSE FROM WHERE I CAN GET THE HELP IN DETAIL. HOW DO I LAID THE FOUNDATION. PLEASE EXPLAIN.

  4. I’ll post a non-cement recipe in an upcoming blog post. You don’t need cement. There are various recipes.
