High grade eco materials for structurally sound homes

Stabilised Rammed Earth is a widely available building material with virtually no side effects associated with collection and use.

The materials and techniques used provide a comfortable indoor environment using energy efficiency combined with passive and active solar systems. New Zealand wool, a renewable resource and a product free of pollutants, is used for insulation in the ceilings and timber walls.
