In December 2018, AECT was invited to build a CEB home for the TV show Building Off The Grid. Over the course of five months, with a small (3 members on an average day) crew, AECT built a beautiful 1,000 square foot CEB home using AECT compressed earth block machines!
You can watch the entire 40-minute episode on the DIY Network website here:
The team started by manufacturing the 9,500 CEBs needed to complete the build. The 6,500 exterior earth blocks were stabilized with approximately 8% portland cement…while the 3,000 interior earth blocks were un-stabilized.
