Trials finishing rammed earth walls

Looking at different finishes.

Soil - sand 5-3 done immediately.  almost no cracking

Nothing done to wall

pipes in wall for placing supports later

My neighbors ugly wall.  Including efflorescence being seen on bottom.

Stones rammed along formwork.

bricks rammed along formwork

soil - sand  5-3

No finish but marble dust in the rammed earth

Soil-sand  3-5

soil-sand  1-1  Not good, add more sand!

Can't remember where this was taken.

 Next two pics gypsum plaster over the rammed earth.

Plaster Cement-soil-sand  2-2-1
