The Village Builder
IMPACT 2005 SOIL BLOCK MACHINE
You may have heard the old cliché, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”  If the ancient Romans had owned a fleet
of Village Builders, the challenge of building the city in a very short time would have been more imaginable.
The Village Builder™ IMPACT 2001 SOIL BLOCK MACHINE (SBM) employs the age-old technology of using native
soils to build homes and other types of structures, and combines it with the sophistication and acceleration of modern
technology.  The result is one of the most efficient and productive methods of construction available in today’s expanding
demand for inexpensive and environmentally safe dwellings.  The Village Builder™ is the modern-day answer for providing a
means of significantly enhancing the centuries-old process of making soil blocks by hand or by other methods which are
slow, crude, and cumbersome.  The Village Builder™ is versatile, very affordable, cost effective to operate, and is easily
maintained by a single operator.  It is very light and can be hauled with a farm tractor or almost any other type of vehicle with
a ball hitch.  Once on site, the machine is easily maneuvered by manpower into the various production locations.  Quite
simply, The Village Builder™ dramatically increases the speed and quality with which soil blocks can be made in the areas of
the world where adobe style construction is a viable option.  
THE MACHINE.  The Village Builder™  is, by far, the
most  advanced  and  reliable  soil  block  machine in any
adobe style construction market.  Engineering quality and
rugged design  have transformed   The  Village Builder™  
into  one of  the most  dependable and versatile machines
of its kind.  Its rugged wheeled  machine  design  allows  
it to be easily transported to almost any part of the world
and can immediately be put into  block  production  with  
little  or  no field  preparation.   Only  a  few  people  are
required to  effectively operate the machine and produce
blocks that can quickly be placed in the walls of a house.
THE BLOCKS. “   From production to construction  with-
out  interruption!
™”      Blocks  produced  by  The  Village
Builder™ can be  varied  in thickness  and can be used  for  
construction  as  soon  as  they  are made.   A single Village
Builder™   Soil  Block  Machine  can  produce  blocks  at  a
sustained  rate of  approximately 180 blocks  per hour.  The
basic  building  block  produced  by   The Village  Builder™
(depending on soil type)  has an average weight  of about 8  
pounds (3.6 kilograms),  and is capable  of producing  most
of the walls of a  small house  in just a few days. The photo
on the left shows a wall with a window that was  produced  
with  painted  and  unpainted  blocks  from The Village Buil-
der™.  Contact  SCI directly  to find out  about

performance with The  Village Builder™
BLOCK-SEAL™. Blocks that are produced by The Village
Builder ™ are significantly  more dense and  stronger  than   
those  that  were produced  by the centuries-old method of
making  blocks by hand.  And now,  The Village Builder™  
blocks  can  be  made  even  stronger  and  more  weather
resistant  by simply  adding  Block-Seal™  to the soil while
making  the blocks  with  The Village Builder.™   Shown in
this photo, the block  on  the  left  was  treated with  Block-
Seal, and on the right, only water was used in the manufac-
turing of the block. The blocks were  then  left  in the  open
air  and,  after a  single  rainstorm,  the untreated block had
been severely damaged.  Block-Seal™  is an excellent  addi-
tive for all types of soil used in the manufacturing of blocks
with The Village Builder.™
