Earth Lodges in the Tropics? — 2 Comments

    • You’ll face the same issues, so no it’s not the best choice. I suggest a hurricane resistant roundhouse with strong roof tie downs. You can use poly strapping that goes up and over the walls, plus add hurricane resistant truss anchors that are embedded in the concrete bond beam. Face the door away from prevailing winds, limit the size of roof overhang, etc.
