“There is so much to appreciate about Tony Johnson’s work and, indeed, his presence in the world.
As a builder, he sets his standards very high, has the energy, intelligence, technical knowledge, and commitment to realize them, and is a delight to work with.
Tony is an all-around good, fun, humble, caring person.  As you get to know him, you will realize the preceding praise is insufficient. ”

Rammed earth is an ancient building technique…

It has now been modernized to be stronger, more durable, and energy efficient with the addition of structural components like rebar as well as insulation. SIREWALL is the acronym for this modernized green building technique and it stands for: Structural Insulated Rammed Earth.

Tony Johnson from Earth House Holdings explains about rammed earth construction, and to get a peek at the rammed earth home he is building for his family in British Columbia, Canada.

About

Earth House is a building company with two equally important goals.

Use local, healthy and durable materials to construct spaces for people that will last through the ages with very little energy input or maintenance and will be noticed for their beauty. Build lasting relationships with our clients by involving them completely in the design, selection and construction processes.

How

Earth House constructs each project long before any ground is broken on the building site.

Earth House uses an interactive online selection process that allows clients to feel secure with their decisions and track every aspect of their project. Our clients can track their budget, receive updates and decision reminders, check the schedule, and view daily progress photos and reports online. This level of communication and control of each project is very powerful for both our clients and us.

What

Choosing the right materials can create castle like durability that will far exceed the expected 50 to 80 year life-cycle of a code minimum wood frame house in BC.

Our preferred building materials stand the test of time and are inherently beautiful. The preferred materials also tend to be very energy efficient when designed and installed with intention. From design to completion we listen to our clients about how we can make each building as healthy as possible, within budget considerations, for the intended occupants.

Why

Earth House acknowledges there is a climate crisis that needs to be addressed at all levels of our society.

Building is our challenge and we believe how and what we build will have a positive impact on both our client’s lives and the greater ecology and environment surrounding the construction site. Beautiful and efficient buildings that have a very low “life cycle embodied energy” will be our gift to our descendants.
