 Course details 

Learn to build using what mother nature provides, within my own Rammed Earth Eco-Shed on The Norfolk Broads!
These fun and friendly courses will be held over two days and will cover all the essential areas of building with rammed earth.
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
