Earthbag Building in the Humid Tropics — 5 Comments

  1. Hello,
    How are you? I would like to be pointed to types of affordable designs available to withstand the climate changes occurring particularly for the purpose of constructing a small home in Puerto Rico.


  2. Hi is this structure fit to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes occurring in Puerto Rico since I would like to build a small affordable home?

    • Earthbag homes are actually very well suited for earthquakes, and if built in dome shapes they can be resistant to high winds of hurricanes, because wind can go around the curved structure more easily and its very self supporting with shaking ground.
