Clay and Mud
Natural building material
Clay floors, earthern floors, clay plaster and COB
Clay is the building material of the earth. A fantastic material – offers a sound indoor climate when you plaster your walls with clay plaster.
We do clay floors /earthen floors. A hard, heavy and “soft” floor which is a gift for any house. Clay floors are also very good where we accumulate passive solar and / or in a floor with other heating. A floor without any use of fossil fuel. We build up our clay floors with insulation, mix of clay, sand and gravel, after this clay, earth, sand, chopped straw and at last a surface with clay, fine sand and horse manure. In the end linseed oil and bee wax makes the floor beautiful and strong.
