External walls made from earth or adobe

There is different possibilities of building from earth or adobe. Using this technologies each wall will have different quality. Following there is written few aspects of different earth building technologies.

Rammed earth
Advantages:
- quick
- cheap
- it is favourable for houses with simple wallground-plan
- dividing wall has good acoustic
- there is no mechanical work
Disadvantages:
- it claims to vertical shutter
- building prosess depends on weather (the rain can sweep the not ready walls)
- relatively high drying shrinkage
- complicated discharge of opening
- difficult to mechanize
Suggestion for use: for temporarily used buildings: e.g. summer cottages.

Pressed blocks
Advantages:
- the drying shrinkage take place before
- using it for buildings after pressing the blocks the wall building is quicker
- simple discharge of openings
Disadvantages:
- production and building process depend on weather
It is possible to make pressed blocks by hand or by machine. Machine pressed blocks have higher strength capacity, higher productivity and higher price as hand made pressed blocks.
Suggestion for use: for temporarily used buildings: e.g. summer cottages.

Pressed blocks stabilized by cement (BIOECO)
Advantages:
- high waterproof capacity
- high strength
- high thermal storage capacity
- green roof, green facade
- all loadbearing construction from earth
- unique architectural shape
Disadvantages:
- more cement using
- needing of a reinforced concrete shell
- forms different from the traditional ones
- higher price
Suggestion for use: permanently used buildings, small public building; e.g. inn, on less built up area

Straw clay blocks in wood frame
Advantages:
- the building of the walls does not depend on weather
- easy to mechanize
- the planment of windows is rasiable
- free architectural design
- good heat insulator
- the drying shrinkage take place before building
- after making the blocks the wall building is quicker
Disadvantages:
- it claims more wooden material
- mechanical making
- high price
Suggestion for use: small public buildings: e.g. inns, demanding family houses, low intensity apartment blocks.

Isolated pressed blocks
Advantages:
- good heat insulator
- drying shrinkage take place before building
- after making the blocks the wall building is quicker
Disadvantages:
- not enough stress capacity for public buildings
Suggestion for use: family houses.
