We have experience of building with natural materials such as earth, straw and bamboo. Sometimes these materials are obtained from the build site itself. We emphasise sourcing materials – clay, stone, timber – locally where possible, and always re-using / salvaging timber or bricks for example. Using lime mortars and clay plasters mean that materials can been re-used by future generations too, or will breakdown without harming the environment.
We can build an earth oven in your garden, at your school, allotment, food or community project – where you can cook bread & pizzas, roasts & stews. We use reclaimed bricks or timber, and clay-rich earth, often from the build site itself.
Building an earth oven from clay-rich sub-soil is a great project to do with a group of people, as many hands really do make much lighter work – hence it’s really suited to be part-built at a workshop –then your family and friends can learn how to build one too!. This can also reduce the build costs.
EcoRefab may be able to run the build as a workshop so your friends and family can learn how to make one too!
Get in touch with us, whether you’re interested in a clay oven for your garden, a large earth dome or a super-insulated straw-bale building.
We are committed to seriously reducing construction waste.
This is the only site waste from a 2 week earth build!
