Quentin Branch on Video

Quentin Branch of Rammed Earth Solar Homes shares his wisdom in a four-part video found here.

It is a thorough and succinct description of rammed earth building processes, including soil testing, formwork, rammers and design; and offers a preview of what can expect from Mr. Branch's workshops in Oracle, Arizona.

We get a lot of requests for DIY information, this seemed like an excellent resource for people to get an idea of what rammed earth construction entails for an owner-builder or contractor.
