Rammed Earth Building, Taukhel
At our main site in Taukhel, Godavari we have two rammed earth buildings:
1) a load bearing structure with 40cm (16 inch) thick rammed earth walls
2) a concrete pillar structure with rammed earth infill walls
We welcome visitors who are interested to come and view the buildings but please call in advance to check if we are home or not.
We have ongoing load bearing rammed earth projects in Chitlang in Makwanpur and Bakundole, near Kupondole in Kathmandu and will be starting a new project in Accham in the coming weeks.
Other completed projects include:
- load bearing play house at The British School in Sanepa
- infill rammed earth wall projects is in Baisepati
As part of the recovery effort after the earthquake, we are aiming to start rebuilding of our neighbours' homes using rammed earth in Taukhel and to use this site for demonstration and training of individuals and organisations.
