Ellenborough Falls, Comboyne
When we think of the dream home that we would like to have in the near (or perhaps distant) future, what comes up are the typical features of substantially comfy living conditions: several - and baths, spacious living areas, top-quality audio-visual amusement systems, furnishings of the very elegant designs that were sourced from exclusive makers from around the globe, a garage that can house many vehicles, pools… The list goes on, and every item included contributes to the high-level of comfort and fulfillment that could truly be experienced by the homeowners. Let out a sigh of pleasure at the picture in your thoughts, and luxuriate in the possibilities.
Nonetheless, in these times of increased consciousness regarding man’s excesses and abuse of natural resources and how they wreak havoc on our present environment and climate condition, more and more people are taking care to include ecologically responsible choices of their lives. Whilst the commitment of centralised air-conditioning, pools, and bright lights may appeal too many, we need to evaluate whether we really need said features to be able to say that we’re fully satisfied. If you want to choose the more sensible, eco-friendly living choice, you might prosper to look into having a home built with rammed earth.
This kind of building material has been employed to develop parts of the Great Wall of China, and that we understand that the structure still stands 2,000 years later. Rammed earth homes can be found in numerous parts of Europe and so are growing in popularity in the United States in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and California. Particularly, Australia has extensively adopted this process of construction because of the limited supply as well as high-cost of timber materials. The produced soils are found from local quarries and have just the right amount of stabilizing and weather-resistance properties.
I’ll be building with rammed earth next year!
