Located in the historical town of Binalong, this old 1800’s jail cell was originally built with ‘pise’ walls – also known as Rammed Earth. It was the final resting place of famed outlaw, Johnny Gilbert.
We were lucky enough to rebuild this historical structure using a portion of the old un-stabilised walls incorporated into new stabilised Rammed Earth walls. The original roof trusses, tin and even steel bars for the cell window were reinstated.
Such a wonderful project to restore a very interesting piece of Australian history. Locally sourced materials used in combination with the original walls made for a great colour to suit the landscape.
We look forward to the next project on this property soon!
We’d love to talk to you about your project, and help you get the design you want. We’re all about executing your vision – building innovative and sustainable walls that people love.
