Kiva Style: Former Tipi Residents Build a Rammed-Earth Home

Working with earth, wood, glass and crystals, Tom and Flame Lutes have created a truly sacred space in the Colorado high country.

The home is built using fourteen-inch rammed earth bricks and finished with Elastomeric stucco. Twenty-four photovoltaic panels provide for all the Luteses’ power needs.
