This LEED for Homes Gold project is situated on a walnut ranch in the Central Valley. Marrying modern details with the age-old tradition of rammed earth, this home sets the standard for green design. It harnesses both passive and active heating and cooling strategies including thermal mass, geothermal heat pump, solar thermal and solar PV systems.

For thousands of years, rammed earth has been a hallmark of sustainable construction - thick insulating walls made from rock and earth sourced from the building site itself, or just nearby. Rammed earth has gone through a renaissance of sorts over the past 30 years with the craft being celebrated

Unfired earth building materials — rammed earth, adobe, compressed earth block — are a plentiful, structurally robust, and natural alternative to mainstream construction systems. Up to now, they have been more associated with the desert west, where adobe has been used for centuries, than with Central or East Texas. That could change.
