Abstract

Imagine taking a mud hut and glamorizing it—transforming what used to be a simple, one-room dwelling into a multi-story home with modern appliances and decorations. That’s what companies such as Earth Block, Inc. and Midwest Earth Builders aim to do.

The blocks are composed of the clay and sand in the surrounding area where the structure is being built, according to Midwest Earth Builders’ website
