Building off the Grid

Featured Products


Want to stay in a CEB house?

Come visit us in San Antonio, and spend the night in this beautiful CEB home featured on "Building off the Grid".  

This home is 100% off the grid and GREEN. You’ll find it rustic but clean and comfortable.  It is entirely made from earth using AECT CEBs (compressed earth blocks). The floor is Earthen and sealed with linseed oil. The ceiling, trim and closet walls are made from up cycled barn wood. The sinks, tub and appliances were rescued from finding their way in the landfill. We believe in sustainable living and doing our part to leave Earth better than we found it.

Why AECT Compressed blocks?

AECT Small block press

 The AECT Small Block Press allows customers to test soil in the field to determine its suitability for making compressed earth blocks. 

AECT Compressed Earth Block

Thank you for your interest in AECT Compressed Earth Block machines  (CEB/Adobe). We truly believe that these machines have a place as a  less expensive means of construction. We are continually working to  reduce construction time and labor costs. AECT was established in 1989, and has been building quality equipment  for the Earthen Construction industry Ever since. We have machines in the US and  27 foreign countries. Soil is an inexpensive building material and earthen construction has  certainly stood the test of time. The AECT "CEB" machines could easily  re-establish CEB/Adobe as a primary building material around the world  and the CEB's are the original green building technology. These portable, self-contained machines reduce material cost and  labor for both residential and commercial construction. The AECT CEB  machines provide compressed soil blocks on site and ready to lay in the  wall. The average rate of block per hour for each machine are: Impact  2001: 290-300 blocks, 2500HD (Morphed Impact with 3500 &  added Hopper): 480 blocks, 3500: 480 blocks.

 Each machine uses a minimum amount of electrical power or diesel fuel.  The low fuel cost helps the concern for energy savings in the cost of  production of blocks as a building material. Compressed soil blocks have now become a viable product that can be  mass-produced to high technological standards. Soil Block Construction  offers people a natural, environmentally friendly and inexpensive  solution to the rising costs of building and energy. Due to heating and cooling efficiency, the real savings is in the  cost of ownership, as well as the construction savings that apply. Thank you.
