    Local materials are often the best to build with in any climate thanks to the reduced amount of energy consumption due to transport, and this is certainly true in the desert as well. Additionally, adobe bricks made locally, which consist of dirt and plant fibers that are then mixed with water and allowed to dry into their final form, are great building materials in desert climates. They are low cost and energy efficient to make. They have a high thermal mass that keeps houses cooler during the day while gradually releasing heat during cool nights to regulate the temperature in living spaces. This simple technology is very well suited for its climate and has many benefits making it a great choice to use.
