With Baja Blox, you can create sustainable, high-quality homes that meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Blox and Brick

All bricks come in the following colors:
  • earth colored
  • red, blue, turquoise, black, cafe, green, yellow

All prices are in pesos. All sizes are 6" x 12" x 6". Note that because our brick sizes are so much larger than a standard brick, the cost is considerably lower. You need fewer of our blocks to build a wall than you need of the regular sized 4" x 8" x 2.25" bricks. Compressed Earth Blocks are about one third the price of standard bricks for the same space covered.

Brick Shape / Design Earth Color Special Color Note
Lego $24 $28 easiest construction
Channel $26 $30 great for piping
Flat/Paver $26 $30 flooring option
Additional Cost Savings
CEBs are superior for heat retention in winter and better at keeping the house cool in summer.

Other Compressed Earth Block Projects

Cua House, Venezuela

Augusto Corrales, an esteemed engineer and developer from Cúa, Miranda State, Venezuela, has been involved in numerous large-scale projects, including constructing over 1,000 homes in recent years. To further improve his construction methods, two of his trusted engineers spent two weeks to learn how to build using Compressed Earth Blocks (CEB). Upon returning, they built a demo house with CEBs on a site where Sr. Corrales had already built 300 houses using cement blocks. Their goals were twofold: first, to compare the cost of CEB construction with concrete block construction, and second, to gauge potential buyers' reactions to this type of construction.

The results were surprising: The CEB-built house reduced construction costs by 20% using the same floor plan and area as the concrete block houses. The cost savings were achieved by using a wooden ceiling instead of metal panels and using ceramic tiles for flooring instead of concrete. Additionally, potential buyers overwhelmingly preferred the new CEB design. As a result, Sr. Corrales had to price the CEB houses 15% higher than the concrete block houses, even though they cost 20% less to build. This pricing strategy was necessary to sell the remaining concrete houses, and it ultimately helped to increase the adoption of sustainable construction practices in the region.

Echale a tu Casa (https://echale.mx/en/)

As a small business from San Felipe, Mexico, we understand the devastating impact that natural disasters can have on small rural communities. In September of 2013, a dam broke near Acapulco and unleashed a massive flood that destroyed everything in its path, leaving more than 200 families homeless. However, through a joint effort between the government and Echale a tu Casa, a sustainable rebuilding project was initiated on June 7th, 2014. The project involved constructing nearly 200 homes, a school, and a church, all built using Echale a tu Casa’s innovative building model. What’s more, the community itself has been providing the labor for the project, creating job opportunities and a sense of ownership in the rebuilding process. Thanks to Echale a tu Casa’s model, which has been used to build over 30,000 homes across Mexico, we can help rebuild communities in a sustainable and equitable way.

Nepal (https://impactnepal.org/)

Impact Nepal uses interlocking bricks as a sustainable and cost-effective building material for homes, schools, and community infrastructure projects in Nepal. Interlocking bricks are preferred for their durability, insulation properties, and earthquake resistance. The organization trains local communities in the interlocking brick-making process and empowers them to build their own homes and contribute to community projects. This approach promotes sustainable building practices and supports the economic empowerment of local communities. Impact Nepal’s use of interlocking bricks helps to create a more sustainable future for Nepal by reducing the use of traditional building materials, such as fired bricks and cement, which have negative environmental impacts.

Margarita, Venezuela

This sustainable housing project on Margarita Island not only offers unique, custom-built homes constructed using a combination of compressed earth blocks, stone, wood, brick, and ceramic materials but also promotes a sense of community through shared amenities. As a gated community, the project offers privacy and security to residents, but the emphasis on sustainability ensures that the development is also sensitive to the local environment and economy. The use of locally sourced materials and sustainable building practices provides local job opportunities and empowers the community with the knowledge and skills to build homes that are not only beautiful and functional but also environmentally responsible. Furthermore, the community building with a shared swimming pool and barbecue offers a space for residents to come together and build lasting relationships.

Projects from around the world

The use of Compressed Earth Blocks (CEBs) in construction projects worldwide is contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly planet. By utilizing locally sourced materials, CEB projects help to reduce the environmental impact associated with traditional construction materials like concrete and steel. CEB buildings also have excellent thermal properties, reducing energy consumption for heating and cooling, and helping to mitigate the effects of climate change. Moreover, the use of CEBs creates local job opportunities and promotes community development by empowering local communities with the skills and knowledge to construct their homes and buildings sustainably. Overall, the increasing adoption of CEB construction worldwide is a positive step towards creating a more sustainable and equitable planet.
