Taos Pueblo They haven't brought utilities into the pueblo and around 150 people still live here. The whole adobe thing is perfectly effective for the environment, warm in winter and cool in summer, but what a Lot of Work.

The bricks are made from dirt, straw, and water. Then the plaster that protects the brick is also made from dirt, straw, and water. The thing is you have to reapply the plaster every 6 months or the whole structure starts disintegrating.
