We will cover many topics together and you will take away the confidence to go forward and complete a project of your own, to include:

  • Design and location of your structure
  • Footings and DPC
  • Soil suitability – soil testing
  • Earth blending – preparing earth mixes
  • ‘Coffin’ former design – corners, curves and straights
  • Tools – what to use and how to use them
  • Ramming techniques
  • Window and door openings – sills and lintels
  • Bond Beams
  • Green ‘living’ roofs





  1. I have been inspired by what you all have achieved with rammed earth. Am presently building an estate and would be changing 100 percent of the designs to rammed earth.

    Would be grateful if I could be given tips on methods.

    I stay in Africa, Nigeria specifically after spending years in both Canada and south Africa.

    Thank you so much for all the inspiration being shared
