Helping villagers build their own CEB "huts"

Submitted by bambam on Fri, 31/01/2014 - 23:07

Hello from West Africa,
I am interested in CEB construction to help villagers still living in grass huts (and millet stalk compound walls) to move into a more durable, less fire-prone structure. Most everyone here who has the means builds one or two room structures of about 4 meters square per room. There is no electricity or plumbing in these villages to be concerned about in the building process.

Can you please tell me, to the best of your knowledge.
If someone wanted to use the Interlocking Soil Cement bricks in regulated western countries, will they be allowed without any great difficulty?
For example i would like to build with them in the USA.
