The Valley Song House uses a very beautiful dark brown for the walls with the intent to have a nice contrast to the white plaster that will be used on the interior roof. The house is nestled into the north bank on a south facing slope. The North walls will be buried 6-7′ deep. Yes, you can bury stabilized rammed earth because it is just that strong and durable!
Ramming is underway on the second wall.
The inside section of the curved wall form is done.
We are now making the curved rammed earth wall on the north east of the house.
A stairway will curve up this rammed earth wall to the second story. A utility room will be underneath the stairs.

A signature wall with musical impressions for a special touch.
Lovely rammed earth pillars and the office walls in the background.

The pictures don’t do these rammed earth walls justice, they are quite magnificent and even better in real life.
