That structure is really cool.

"rammed earth" or "tamped earth" brings good google results.


PICTURE AND GREAT STORY:
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/08/garden/08dirt.html


There's a lady in Oregon specializing in these floors. Her company is "From These Hands"

Also Mudcrafters in Crestone colorado.

Earthen Floors (instruction guide) is apparently the bible for this stuff. Is out of print but coming to this website soon: http://caneloproject.com/

There's a guy in Austin doing tamped floors.
