What we do

OzEarth builds, and teaches people to build:

  • Cal-Earth style superadobe, or (more generically) earthbag building
  • Root cellars
  • Fire shelters
  • Hybrid stone / superadobe / cob / lime render & mortar hard landscaping for outdoor applications
  • Stone foundations and infill walls
  • Adobe floors, benchtops, retrofitting
  • Detailing and mosaics
  • Pizza ovens, inspired by Firespeaking’s amazing barrel design
  • Light Earth construction: insulating walls and ceilings (infill)
  • Cob infill walls, including bottle walls

We operate our natural building business on a standard subcontracting basis, as well as running barnraisings, courses and intensive training consultancies both on and off our own site in the Huon Valley, Tasmania.
