A light-clay house offers a naturally healthy living space. Made simply, with clay, wood, straw or other organic fibres, it is ideal for people with environmental concerns or sensitivities to some of the toxins found in modern commercial building materials. A light-clay building takes a bit more time and human energy than the average modern house, but its materials are inexpensive, or free, and they are fire-resistant. Light-clay is also an exceptionally suitable building medium for inexperienced builders.
Building With Light-Clay is a detailed and comprehensive account of every step in the process of building your dream shelter. It is also a vital resource in exploring all aspects of this building technique.
