Never know that compressed earth may not need to be burned if we apply chemical. Thanks
I search around and found this site:

Some interesting file is:
Basics of Compressed Earth Blocks, The booklet briefly compares compressed earth blocks (CEBs) with various other common earth construction techniques, outlines the main advantages and disadvantages, describes the production process, the necessary equipment and steps required to set up a production unit, and deals with the main economic aspects of CEB production. Various other aspects, such as vocational training, management, marketing and building design are also briefly outlined.
Compressed Earth Blocks Volume II: Manual of Design and Construction, Designed with the intention of widely disseminating theoretical knowledge as well as practical skills, a large part of the book is devoted to practical examples of construction techniques and architectural design.
There are other interesting file too for anyone want to build home.
About insulating home with material containing micro vacuum bubble, I am surprise! I thought you guys already incorporating vacuum on any insulation since I read it on some architectural book that windows on the west will have vacuum insulation and mentioned vacuum give nice insulation to heat.
It always hot here, the old way to cool the house are also abandoned even when it is very effective. The way is to allow air to circulate between the ceiling and the roof. Sicne hot air is not trapped in between, it goes up and not transfer heat from the roof to the room.
