Make rebar and threaded rods(CncControllers) using DIY induction furnace (http://opensourceecology.org/). Hack the Flexlock design and make with compressed earth machine, opensource ecology has plans. Threaded rods runs the height of the building and is tightened down with nuts, minimizing the concrete usage. Only the ends of the construction is filled with concrete, using much less than the (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9cDy9XkXPw clay soil mixed with 8% cement, exceeds concrete strength) design.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgPJIq2M82o The best compressed earth block solution available (http://www.dwellearth.com). We traveled far into the coffee covered mountains in El Salvador to provide a community with a tool and skills so that they can build themselves quality houses from the dirt under their feet. As you can see by the fist few pictures many around the world are already trying to build with what they have in the communities they live in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWUD7oO4vIg uses a soil/clay slurry(high water content) instead of cement to cement the bricks in place. Slurry is same content as bricks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_553179&feature=iv&src_vid=CWUD7oO4vIg&v=lAdZmlwmveQ . Hack the Vermeer patent on compressed bricks.

PET foundation Edit
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGcdStK0yBc Square slabs of stone joined with 4cm width cement, considerable savings over pouring concrete foundation. PET bottles place on top for residence.
