Rammed Earth
Rammed earth construction is exactly what the name implies. What takes thousands of years for the earth to develop naturally now can be done with relative ease by mechanically compacting properly prepared dirt. When completed a rammed earth home is about as strong as concrete.

The advantages of construction of this type include fireproof walls, rot resistant, and termite proof. The super thick walls make the home soundproof and highly energy efficient.
