Tamped Earth Floors Unstabilized Earthen Floor Using Road Base by Frank Meyer [Note: This technique by Frank Meyer is a alternate method for making earthen floors. Tamped earth floors dry much faster than poured adobe and also cracks less.] A few years ago, when asked to make an earthen floor, I started by collecting all the soil types available in our area. Austin, Texas is situated in a geologically diverse area, so I got samples from several places including the building site, my backyard and all the commercially available dirts, loams and road bases.

(It would certainly make an appropriate container to house one’s art fair purchases once home.) The structures and other “bespoke, architectural collectibles,” as their developer, Robbie Antonio, called the designs, were for sale through a new company called Revolution Precrafted Properties that aims to deliver limited editions of small houses and pavilions designed by big names within a few months of an order.
