I’m curious to learn how many builders use earthbag stands to hold bags during the filling process. I’ve found they’re unnecessary. I fill earthbags in place on the wall, and with just a little care the bags remain vertical with no added support. A bucket chute holds the bag open, and nothing else is needed. This means one less thing to build or buy, and one less thing to move around hundreds of times (particularly while balancing high on the wall).
It occurred to me that I’ve almost never heard or seen anyone using bag stands except for the reference in Earthbag Building: The Tools, Tips and Techniques. We’d love to hear your opinion. Please leave a comment.
