When it came time to plaster our home we knew we wanted a breathable earth plaster to cover our superadobe walls. We did some experimentation with clay that we excavated from behind our house. Earth plasters are beautiful but not at strong as cement plasters for this reason it is important to consider your house design before chosing a natural plaster. We designed our house to have large 1 to 1.5 meter eaves over every wall to ensure that the walls would no get hit directly from rain. We also decided to use mortar which is a lime and cement mix to stabilze our earth.
