Earth building

Earth Building is the use of unfired earth soils as building material.

It’s use dates back to since well over 11,000 years ago to this present day.

Around half of the world’s populations live in earth built dwellings.

The main methods include; Mudbrick (Adobe), Rammed Earth (Pise), Cob, Pressed Earth Brick, Poured Earth, Wattle & Daub, Earth Bag, Light Earth and Earth Renders.

Sustainability

Earth building is a renewable, sustainable technology, the ultimate green building material. 

We believe it is exactly what the world needs now, to provide safe, durable, comfortable and desirable homes.

Earth Building Association of Australia

The Earth Building Association of Australia (EBAA) is an organisation formed to promote the use of Unfired Earth as a building medium throughout Australia.

EBAA is a broad based organisation which has members that include builders, specialist contractors, tradespeople and owner builders, specialist manufacturers and suppliers, architects and designers, consultants, educators and students, with a common interest in the use of Unfired Earth.

The formation of EBAA commenced in 1990 at a gathering held in Maldon, Victoria. A subsequent meeting took place in Mildura, Victoria in 1991 which elected the first Committee of EBAA. Since then the primary focus of the Association has been communicating constructively with all levels of Government concerned with the regulation of Building practice in Australia as well as educating and informing our membership and the public.
