ADOBE BUILDER Back-Pac #2 Highlights
Issues 6/7, 8 and 9

Inter-ámericas ADOBE BUILDER measures 11" wide and 14 1/2" tall with color cover, and some interior color (on coated 80 lb. paper). The bulk of the magazine is printed on 50 lb. non-yellowing book paper, in black and white. Articles address Adobe, Rammed Earth, Green Building, and Solar Applications. Graphics are unusually "rich", with photos, line drawings & floor plans. Covers Southwestern U.S., Latin America and Caribbean. Readers appreciate advertising sources for Design, Service and Supply - as locating these elsewhere is difficult to impossible.

Book 9

In 2001, New Mexico adopted the first building code specifically for rammed earth in U.S. History. It's in here, letter-by-letter, along with some history and photos.

A must for anyone planning a rammed earth project anywhere U.S.A. Good line drawings and explanations clarify the code.
