Energy Efficient home with “beaten earth”

polish rammed earthI like the simplicity of this Polish home. Small in scale and great solar passive design and thrmal mass. I cannot work out whether they have insulated the southern (actually north in the northern hemisphere) wall but with the snow on the ground you would surely hope they have. It proves that energy efficient dwellings don’t need to be expensive. Food for thought! Re-post from rammed earth is for everyone. Funnily, google translated rammed earth in polish to “beaten earth”.
