Default Rammed Earth, Earthships and Adobe

Anyone familiar with Rammed Earth homes, Earthships and Adobe or mud brick construction? All are fairly easy to do as low tech, also straw bail buildings. I actually saw a straw bail home built and was super impressed with its insulation and strength. I have an acquaintance that built a home in South Texas made of rammed earth and it is very impressive. Also the same on insulation value. They added Portland to the mix and also sealed the external walls to help repel water. It is surprisingly cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I can see these as common architecture as well as Earthships (recycled garbage homes).
