I am looking for Rammed Earth Builders in the CA Bay area in addition to advice from anyone with experience using this material.
Our project is a small 100SF backyard office with a landscape wall extending across the client’s rear yard. The office is sunken 2’ into a hill so a portion of the walls sit in the ground. We are hoping on using Watershed block below grade to further reduce cement (any experience/advice with this product is welcomed).
How can we design the walls to minimize cement use?
In addition to a roof, what are the methods for waterproofing RE?
In our Bay area climate, how well would a 4’ RE landscape wall survive the winters unprotected (no roof)?
If anyone has time to talk through these and other questions, please let me know!
