The Earthbuilders’ Guild

The Earthbuilders’ Guild is an organization dedicated to the Betterment & Advancement of Earthen Construction of homes and commercial buildings.  We invite you to join us in this mission of preserving and promoting the age old building methods of adobe, rammed earth and compressed earth block construction.  The commitment of people in this industry stretches across family traditions, meaningful work, environmental concerns, and joy of working with the earth.  We want to insure that we continue to make history through our building process while improving them to create safe, comfortable, long lasting structures.  Please join us in making that happen by becoming a member.

Next Board Meeting & TEG Tour Albuquerque, NM 

Our next Board meeting will be an in person meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 9:00 am. Our Tour will be at two adobe construction sites.  It will begin at Site #1 at 1:30 p.m.  

Site #1:   1,850 sq ft adobe residence, designed and built by Kenny DeLapp.  This modest home, on a quirky dead-end street in the North Valley, is a pueblo style adobe, with a wandering floor plan and many exterior corners.  It was designed to be a natural addition to the neighborhood, paying homage to the many historic adobes in the Los Griegos neighborhood while not being overly imitative. Plans for the house were drawn up last winter, and work began in May.   Contact TEG for site address.

Site #2  Matt Pacheco, builder.  The house project is a casita addition with a complete remodel, all adobe, 4 phases of construction, all new mechanical, plumbing and about 90% new electrical.  House was originally built in the 70’s.  The project is now in Phase 3 and final phase 4.  Contact TEG for site address. 

If you are interested in attending send us an email for further information – theearthbuildersguild@gmail.com.     Please RSVP by September 30th.  Pat 575-644-8099 or email at:  theearthbuildersguild@gmail.com.
