Phew. Our rammed earth wall is finally finished, now that the weather has cleared.
As outlined in the earlier post, this will form a spine wall down the middle of the new extension, completely enclosed within the shell of the building.
We think it’s rather beautiful, as well as providing lots of thermal mass to keep our house cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
In all, it took 5 days to construct the wall. The first day to set up, one day for each of the panels, and then a day of clean up. While it took quite a lot of labour, it required only 20L of petrol for the compressor, making it a truly green option.
Better photos, and a video, to follow…
