Design Build Live
Project: Building with earth blocks
Join us as we build and plaster an earthen wall of adobe-like Compressed Earth Blocks (CEB). These wonderful, natural earthen blocks are made with a hand- or motor-powered press and can be used to build homes, garden walls, chicken coops and much more. We will also plaster the CEB wall using natural clay plaster.
