Quebec rammed earth house

Posted by admin on July 1st, 2014 under Quebec House  •  Comments Off

This beautiful house was built by our client Bautechnik just inside the Quebec border close to Ottawa. We did the architectural design, provided consulting and initial onsite crew training. It was very satisfying to see this finely finished  home manifest.








Cold outside, cozy inside! That’s the way to go if you must live in Canada.
