I know this is a long shot, since most of the peeps on here are in the states (I am in Canada). We are looking to transition to an intentional community soon in the Okanagan, BC area. We have made ties with a few people that are interested in investing in some land. A little background on my husbands and i's business- https://permies.com/t/139093/Rammed-Earth-Passive-House-Intro

We would like to build passive rammed earth homes that are completely sustainable. If anyone is interested please reply Thank you

I love the idea of the rammed earth bird houses!  I've got 3 kids, and I think that will be a fun project to do with them and learn to understand a little of the technique.  My current plan is to use rammed earth to build a house once we find the land we want to purchase and settle down in.  I like rammed earth because of the mass for energy efficiency, the beauty of the layers, and the fact it's not mold food.  Most other building materials that I've thought about will grow mold if they ever get wet.  That's a big concern of ours since a moldy rental house made us all very sick and still we are recovering.  Thanks for posting!  If you have any other photos of the bird houses or info on how you build them, I'd love to see that!

I think combining intentional community and rammed earth building is crazy awesome by the way!
