Making Adobe Brick with Cement Added

I live in Arkansas and hope someone can help me. I've done a lot of research on the web in search of what I need, to no avail. I am needing help with a recipe to make my own Adobe brick to build a home with. This isn't your regular adobe that just washes away. This recipe has a little cement in it to make it virtually indestructible. The wiring is run through the walls through PVC pipe.

Also, if anyone has good plans for building one of these on a 2 story level I'd like all the help I can get. I've never done this before but I've got a lot of ideas. I just need help in making them come true. Any and all help will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

After a second attempt, I found a recipe on a New Zealand website for something called "Adobe Insitu" but most of the websites type it like this: In-situ. The recipe plus other info. is here:

You could Google "adobe In-situ" and "In-situ adobe" for more info.

You might be able to learn more watching videos on the topic on "You Tube". many people there will QandA to help you. or you might just see how it is done from just watching people do it.

Have you thought about using "papercrete"? Papercrete uses a paper and concrete mix that makes a very strong, durable, waterproof, and fireproof building material. It weighs less than adobe or concrete. It also recycles old paper (newspaper, etc).

Here is a link to a site that can give you more information about papercrete - http://www.gree  m/papercrete.htm
