Rammed earth in my opinion is a personal and unique building technique used mostly for the construction of walls, both structural and non-structural in new homes. These walls can be feature walls, with only one or two being included in the design phase of your new build or an entire home constructed out of this one medium. This structure can be used in both indoor and outdoor areas.
The finished result is solid, and highly durable raw earth walls, that are created during this process providing great thermal mass and acoustic benefits, ideal for sustainable living.
Its one thing to talk about the various construction techniques and layers of natural elements used to produce the end result that is not only a feature to your home, but also an extension of your personality that your home will carry for years to come.
Living in a rammed earth home is an experience unlike any other, subconsciously connecting to the building and depending on the individual potentially feeling an increased state of calmness and relaxation. This subconscious connection dates well back to the years of the caveman when living amongst earth was commonplace and practicable. We are now living in a time when people are looking forward to a greener and more sustainable future, and designing homes that make the best use of natural construction materials.
For those interested in this personal and unique building medium of rammed earth in your home, we are passionate and experienced in this field of construction. Casey Lee - Bruce Lee Builder.
