Now i dig a 60x60 foundation ditch. Do a rammed earth fill with 5% lime. first 40cm lift of rammed earth has lime and the last 20cm has a pointed "cap" It will be too much maintainence to keep that limewashed so i will put brick cap.
this section we also made the joints vertical and did not split the bonds. I think this is a better method.
This is three coats on white parts the dark part is only one coat.
this section was done after a period of rain and we were impatient for the earth to dry out before ramming. Notice all the cracking due to shrinking becuase of excess water.
