the frame is then filled in with a layer of damp earth, which typically includes sand, gravel, clay, and a stabilizer.

After this small layer is added, it is compressed into around half its original volume using a pneumatic tamper

This process is repeated iteratively until the frame is filled with compacted earth.

to improve rammed earth’s relatively poor thermal performance, architects may add extra insulation to the walls.

To increase the load-bearing capacity of rammed earth walls, cement will be added into the original soil mixture as a stabilizer
