Several people have asked, so we wanted to give an update that none of the 132 Welcome Home Haiti CEB homes sustained any damage as a result of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck the island this weekend. While most of these homes were not in the hardest hit areas, this disaster underscores the importance of the work WHH are doing down there and why we need far more of these disaster proof CEB homes in areas prone to hurricanes and earthquakes. Check out www.WelcomeHomeHaiti.com for more information on this amazing organization.

We had the pleasure of visiting this gorgeous CEB home in Salida, CO over the weekend. Sitting at 9,550’ elevation, this home (built in 2015 using an AECT 3500 CEB machine) gets exposed to several feet of snow and extreme freeze-thaw cycles each winter...and performs beautifully!

CEB bathroom build

Here’s a video compilation of the CEB bathroom we built on our property this year, as part of an instructional CEB workshop. We used a rubble foundation with a reinforced concrete grade beam and bond beam, and 8% cement-stabilized CEBs that were produced with our machines right there on the property. One stall has a 10% cement-stabilized earthen floor, and the other stall has a dry-set CEB floor; both floors are sealed with linseed oil. We used traditional lime plaster as the exterior finish on three sides, and we left the blocks exposed and applied a masonry waterproofer on the remaining side.

The most advanced compressed earth block machines in the world

We truly believe that these machines have a place as a less expensive means of construction. We are continually working to reduce construction time and labor costs. AECT was established in 1989, and has been building quality equipment for the Earthen Construction industry Ever since. We have machines in the US and 27 foreign countries. Soil is an inexpensive building material and earthen construction has certainly stood the test of time. The AECT "CEB" machines could easily re-establish CEB/Adobe as a primary building material around the world and the CEB's are the original green building technology. These portable, self-contained machines reduce material cost and labor for both residential and commercial construction. The AECT CEB machines provide compressed soil blocks on site and ready to lay in the wall. The average rate of block per hour for each machine are: Impact 2001: 290-300 blocks, 2500HD (Morphed Impact with 3500 & added Hopper): 480 blocks, 3500: 480 blocks.

Each machine uses a minimum amount of electrical power or diesel fuel. The low fuel cost helps the concern for energy savings in the cost of production of blocks as a building material. Compressed soil blocks have now become a viable product that can be mass-produced to high technological standards. Soil Block Construction offers people a natural, environmentally friendly and inexpensive solution to the rising costs of building and energy. Due to heating and cooling efficiency, the real savings is in the cost of ownership, as well as the construction savings that apply.

Hola...this is my earth block build in Baja, Mexico...we are further along since this photo...in the final stages. I am curious have you ever worked with a sealer on the final coat as a preventative measure against erosion or dust? Your thoughts or advice would be much appreciated...Thank you!
