The «Earthen shelter» is a cheap house for it is mainly made
of free materials : the soil which is under our feet (Patrice

It is an ecological shelter for it uses low transformed
materials and needs no grey energy during its building
It is a healthy shelter for it is made of only natural materials.
And it is also a comfortable shelter for the design and
the materials used allow to regulate its thermal and
hygrometric atmosphere.
