Compressed Earth Block Production Started!
Meet Wayne Nelson. He's the "guru" of compressed earth block (CEB) production with the Green Machine. He's a good friend of our architect. They have teamed together on other jobs using CEBs for international housing with the Habitat for Humanity. Wayne lives in Americus, Georgia, but came north to train a local crew in the art of CEB making. Normally Wayne would be on site the entire time , but has other commitments after June 6th, so needs to get the team started now while he's available. The crew is just stacking the bricks in a pile. They will be moved onto the wall of the house once the foundation and first floor deck are complete.
