This house is one of the PISÉ homes that we have built. PISÉ is an acronym for Pneumatically Impacted Sand and Earth. In other words, this is a “Rammed Earth” home where we use modern machinery and techniques to duplicate a centuries old style of building. This style gives excellent solar performance and sound deadening qualities unmatched by any other style of building. On top of that the interiors are a warm, variegated earth tone that is very beautiful.
