"Superadobe"

I don't know how well this would work in much of NH, simply because you need soil that is relatively rock-free. But, it's interesting.

someone could find plenty of sand to build with in NH

Seems like a really cool material. The only problem that I had with the site was that they just oozed commie from their descriptions of the product. Their obligatory UN refugee camp photo didn't help me keep my lunch down either.

There's a lot of that in the enviro community. Screen out the bad, keep the good.
