“Although the technology Michael and Living Systems employs is cutting edge and in many cases years ahead of what other builders are doing, there is a conscious design choice to make the advanced systems work with the boundaries of good aesthetic design and realistic budgets.”

So... How Do We Do It?

We Build With Poured Earth

For as long as man has been around, he has used earth as a building material. Continuing the tradition through present day, modern earth builders have employed primarily the techniques of adobe block and rammed earth. Both processes, however, require large amounts of time, strenuous labor, and great expense. Today, the earth-building industry is witnessing a revolution. Imagine a building with 16″ wide walls being built in the comparable amount of time as standard construction. This is now the reality of our Poured Earth process, which allows us to create beautiful and affordable earthen structures.
