Our costs are higher but we gaurantee you will see cost savings over time…
Passive Rammed Earth houses are 5-10% more expensive than the conventional house, but offer an average of 87% reduction in energy costs. These houses are very comfortable, healthy, and energy-efficient.
Rammed earth has high thermal mass. Thermal mass refers to the structures ability to slowly absorb ambient heat, store it then radiate this heat. Thermal mass is not considered in R-value testing and can strongly influence the performance of insulation and reduce energy consumption. Because we have higher thermal mass, we don’t need as much insulating materials for our wall systems compared to a conventional home to meet passive house standards, recent energy modelling has proven this!
Take a look at some of our designs below!
A couple of the stock designs by our affiliate designer are shown below. These photos don’t show the rammed earth exterior aesthetics, but we have added another home design at the very end of this page to show you an idea of the rammed earth look.
