Egypt History of adobe

Egypt History of adobe

Since 3800 BCE rectangular houses of about 100 to 125 m² have been built with sun dried bricks. Mud, dredged from the bottom of the Nile and chaff were well mixed, shaped with wooden forms and the soft bricks were dried in the sun becoming nearly as hard as rock. In the hot, almost rainless climate of Egypt adobe (from djeb(et), coptic tob - brick) houses were the most energy and labour efficient buildings.


The History of Adobe Houses

The History of Adobe Houses

In order to survive, humans have always found and built shelters to protect them from the weather and dangerous prey. Adobe, a material that combines sand, soil, straw and water, was used for the earliest home construction. It was mostly created in areas with sparse water and vast open space but has been used effectively in cooler locations as well. In cooler temperatures, the walls of an adobe structure absorb and radiate heat throughout the house when the sun goes down. In the summer, the temperature in the house remains comfortable. Because of the adobe archeological remains in the Southwest United States, it is often incorrectly believed that this construction material was only used in the distant past. Many modern homes continue to use this versatile material.
