This week I am talking with earth floor expert Sukita Reay Crimmel. Sukita has laid thousands of square feet of earthen floor, written the book on earth floors... and was an extremely influential teacher to me back at the beginning of my natural building journey!

This episode is essentially two earth floor lovers, geeking out pretty hard. We talk through the basic earth floor knowledge, then jump into some more geeky in depth topics. We also learn about Sukita's company 'Claylin'.

We talked for a long time, and I've had to edit some bits out to make it listenable in one go! - You can hear some of the bits that didn't make the cut on our Patreon page - http://www.patreon.com/buildingsustainability
