Adobe houses are made from mud that is formed into bricks and stacked up to build a home. Think of it like a mud igloo.
The easiest way to do this is to create wooden molds and lay them in the sun. Then, in a wheelbarrel or buckets, you mix water, soil, and straw until you get the right consistency.
You dump this mud mixture into the forms and tamp them firm. Once they're settled in, you let them bake.
