Our ancestors used mud, stone, Bamboo, lime, ash, natural fiber in construction of houses and these are fabricated as bricks, binding material, struts, posts, roofs, etc. in the construction of the houses.
The relevance of these materials grows in the present scenario due to challenges of global waring, climate change and sustainable development.
