Hi all, I've been presented an opportunity to develop a design build project on an undeveloped ten acre lot on an island off the coast of Honduras. I immediately thought of using adobe as the primary building material, but as I pondered the prospects I realized that it might not be feasible to build with mud on a coral island. I'd like to stick to local and low cost materials, but I don't know what the other possibilities might be. If you have any suggestions or know of any good resources I'm all ears. Thanks, Greg
