24” Earthbag Modules — 4 Comments

  1. Hi! I would like to build a 3x4m ‘shed’ and am wondering about why bag’s sensitivity to light should be a problem since the shed will be rendered? Can’t I just use plastic rubble bags? We are in London, UK. Thankyou.

    • UV degradation is not a problem if the structure is built within 2-3 months and then plastered. It’s prudent to protect bags as much as possible, of course. You could cover walls that are not being worked on, for instance.

      I don’t know what rubble bags are. Maybe you could send a link. Thanks.

  2. It also helps with adding vertical rebar pins. These are not always necessary, but are an option when you want to add extra strength (seismic, hurricane and flood-prone areas).
