Compressed Earth Blocks - Healthy Sustainable Building Materials

Episode 129,  Jan 03, 2019, 07:00 AM

Jim Hallock and Lisa Schroder, owners of Colorado Earth, join us on the Art of Construction to share how they are making healthier and more sustainable homes from Compressed Earth Blocks (CEB). Jim and Lisa take us through the process of how CEBs are manufactured, the benefits of using them over sticks and bricks construction, and what their vision of a better future holds. Don’t think of CEBs as “alternative,” and instead learn why humans have been building with them for over 10,000 years and why it’s time to start using earth blocks more widely in the United States.
