Mid-July Update Rammed Earth Building

Getting ready for the day

Setting up the end forms

Installed electrical boxes
Help arrived, a couple natural building enthusiasts. Started ramming the first lift

Even adding water helpings the process a lot, when there's only two of us. 

              They definitely made the day more fun :)  

Made it half way up the form when we called it quits for the day, it was a great day :)

So we starting the day with half to go!
 The wall went really well and it was great to have help.
It's awesome to be able to share what we have learned during this project.


And on the next wall ;)


The next wall an inside wall 18' long

These long inside walls take longer to set up for sure

Electrical boxes and rebar are in

The sheets are air nailed to hold them in place.

couple more sheets to cut and install

And that's as far I we got last week. 
Guess which wall we'll be working on next week "Shannon" lol
