N2 - With rapid industrialisation and the increase in popularity of concrete and brick constructions, a decline in earth houses has been observed especially in the rural areas of India. A survey was carried out in five regions of India to understand the technical and social factors favouring/limiting the construction and everyday use of earth houses. As an outcome of the survey, a low societal image of earth houses and durability issues, such as termite infestation and poor resistance to rain water, were the main reasons behind the choice of low-income households in favour of modern building materials over earth construction.
