Default Earth Bricks

Hi Folks,

This past weekend, some friends and I visited the Open Source Ecology project in Missouri.

We were there to tour the place and also lend a hand setting up some earthen bricks. The Open Source brick compressing machine really was pretty cool, and FAST too!

I've got a little video of part of our trip here:


Has anyone worked with earthen brick on a project like a home? It seemed like a great material. We were actually starting to build columns with it. Apparently, they have tested these bricks and they can carry an amazing amount of weight.

Just wondering if anyone has worked with this material before.

-Ben
