Earthbag Desert Shelter — 4 Comments

  1. This is super cool :) It looks appropriate for New Mexico :)

    I’d like to see something like this that is larger, like the economizer :)

    Keep up the awesome work Owen :)

  2. What’s the drainage look like? Assuming some water managed to get in somehow, it doesn’t look like there’s a way for it to get out other than you being a one-man bucket brigade :) Or would it seep into the floor?

    • This is for desert regions where there’s almost no rain. Features include a cellar door (raised door frame not shown), overhang over the window and vent, plastic sheeting on the outside of the earthbag walls. Plus, rain will readily drain away through the sandy soil next to the shelter.
