Quicker than the tarp method and easier on the knees too! I made this method because my knees and ankles are too fragile for the tarp method. The clay came from the subsoil in my back garden and I built a shed with it. Hope muddy and others like it. There is another method to build walls called leicht leim. This one uses just straw and clay. I think the wet straw clay mix is compressed in place into forms and ends up resembling fiberboard. http://www.networkearth.org/naturalbuilding/clay.html has some details (I have seen it but not done light clay)
