Many people choose rammed earth construction because it offers a healthy indoor environment. When designed and built properly, rammed earth homes are warm, dry and energy efficient. Rammed earth walls ‘breathe’ so they counteract humidity, and they naturally maintain a stable internal temperature throughout the seasons. Rammed earth is non-toxic, and we encourage the use of non-toxic materials throughout the entire build where possible.
Rammed earth is energy efficient. When designed correctly, the thermal mass in the walls will maintain a stable internal temperature throughout the seasons. This reduces the need for power based heating and cooling systems.
Sustainable tourism is a concept that covers the complete tourism experience, including concern for economic, social and environmental issues as well as attention to improving tourists’ experiences and addressing the needs of host communities.
