Where are the Earthbag home(s) in the Dominican Republic? Would the builder/owner mind being contacted?
Very few people publish their projects or give out their addresses and contact info. We only report on those we find on the Internet and those that people send to us.
We have the walls for the round, earth-bermed, living roofed, compost toilet/shower room up waiting under wraps for nicer weather in Central Portugal.
Okay, send us a message when your first bag is laid and I’ll add Portugal to the list.
2.25 meters of wall is up using 50cm bag width (empty) as it is earth bermed to 1.8m in height; two tire windows 8 glass block windows. tarped and waiting for good weather to finish with roof and lime plaster.
Also of important note the minimum diameter curve possible using 50cm wide bags is radius 1m across the inside, so our shower room has a floor area of 3.14159265358979323846m or pi (this will get worked into a tile mosaic somewhere i am sure).
In Brazil there are various institutions that teach building techniques with earthbags and there are lots of places all over Brazil with these kind of buildings.
Have a look in this video, they use a different type of bag:
This is wonderful! Thank you, Paula. I’m making a blog post about this right away.
I would love to include this information in my upcoming earthbag book. Can you help me get some good photos and find out the name of suppliers?
Hi Owen, Wow I’m impressed to appear in one of our posts.
I’ve been following your blog with great interest and waiting impatiently to be able to build my own house.
I’m trying to contact the people who made that video, so as soon as I get some information I’ll let you know…
If you want to give me your direct email address that would be easier.
Congratulations for you great work!
Paula, People are already writing for more information. This is one of the most exciting earthbag developments lately, and no doubt people will want to learn more.
My email is on the About Us page, but here it is again:

Thanks again for your contribution.
Where can these bags be obtained?
Here’s a good list on our main site at EarthbagBuilding.com to get started with: http://www.earthbagbuilding.com/resources.htm
Also try googling for local suppliers in your state using keywords like sand bags and poly bags.
We’re building one in Patagonia, Chile. http://ourlittlething.ning.com
Lots of information can be found here.
Hi Paul. Great website. I check your site every few weeks. Looks like you’re making good progress.
