Durability of Earthbag Homes — 6 Comments

    • Good find, thanks. Title: Testing Protocols for Oxidation and Hydrolysis of Geosynthetics

      It’s a nice 204 page read while having a snack.

  1. Owen, do you paint the bags before use or do you fill and tamp them and then only paint the exposed parts?

  2. Owen, rather than using artificial UV blocks like paint, couldn’t we just mix up a quick batch of earth/water/lime slip and paint/smear it on each course as we go!
