Traditional Adobe Building in Columbia — 4 Comments

  1. Kelly I’m really interested and using techniques like this but I’m in a quandary where can I get more information on what is good and cheap for my area I live in Eastern Oklahoma Sequoyah County

    • I would look for opportunities to build an earth-sheltered home in Oklahoma, and earthbags are a good choice for this. If there are trees that can be harvested, cordwood masonry is a good choice. Insulated adobe, rammed earth, or cob would also be good. You can find out more about all of these at

  2. Thank you Kelly ! Didscovering what’s happening around the world in natural construction ! How about Nigerian builder making his houses with plastic bottles filled with earth! In between rows what does he use?
