People have been building homes from earth for thousands of years, but here in the U.S. we have gotten far away from the practice. AECT Earth Block hopes to change that, and they produce innovative machines that compress earth into compact building bricks that are resistant to just about anything!

The company owner, Ryan, built his family’s 1000 square foot home using his machines and earth sourced from his own land. Even better, much of the wood and other elements inside the home were reclaimed locally, making this a super eco-friendly build!

Below there’s a tour of the house, and a video about the earth bricks. The equipment is for sale or rent, and you can purchase ready-made bricks as well.
