PISE

Definition: PISE

PISE (pneumatically impacted stabilized earth) is a modern building technique using good old-fashioned dirt. Pronounced pee-zay, PISE is similar to rammed earth or adobe construction methods. PISE buildings are characterized by thick walls that keep heat inside in cold Winter months, and prevent it from warming the home in the Summer. It’s also a highly eco way to build, since the material for the walls can theoretically be sourced from the building site itself, especially if dirt is taken out to construct a foundation.

My Norwegian immigrant ancestors lived in sod houses. I always felt sorry for them. Isn't this ironic.
