Earthbag Canteen Project in Kathmandu, Nepal — 2 Comments

  1. Where you build is one of the biggest factors that will affect how difficult it is to get code approval for alternative building materials such as earthbags. It’s much more difficult to get code approval in big cities, especially in Florida where hurricanes are common and in CA where there’s earthquake risk.

  2. Note the nearly perfectly straight, vertical earthbag walls. Great job. These workers are now highly trained and efficient. As you can see in the photo, they’re busy attaching plaster mesh that goes up and over the walls for added strength, and also building the formwork for the concrete bond beam.
