A Contemporary Rammed Earth Home in the Mountains / by Watershed Materials

David Easton has directed the construction of hundreds of homes around the country and the world, but began taking on a special job over the past few years - building homes for his children. With decades of experience, David had the perfect opportunity to apply the best of his techniques, including economic re-use of formwork and site sourced resources to help his daughter, Terra, construct a modern rammed earth home high in the California mountains.

The entire construction process has been thoroughly documented here. And below find a series of highlight images from the build.
