Light Earth

We are currently building some of the walls of our house in light earth, and environmentally friendly method which we hope will help deal with the moist, humid climate at Mount Glorious, as well as provide excellent insulation. Light earth is not used much in Australia, but has been round in Europe and The US for a long time. We found out about it in Econest, a great book produced by a company in the USA who do light earth building.

This is how a finished section looks before it's rendered. We'll be updating the blog with information about this method, how it's done, what we've learnt, and how it  works for us.
