This is one of the largest earthbag projects in the world: “This video shows us building our main house (14m2 x 14m2, approximately 1700 sq. ft) and our master suite which is comprised of 4 domes each about 5m2; a bedroom, bathroom, walk-in closet and private sitting room.
This effort took about 4.5 months with about 10 workers on the project. It’s about 3000 sq. ft plus. The finishes are NOT yet completed but you can see how cool the project is looking.
When completed EarthBag Punish will have 5000 sq. ft of living space, (about 500m2) on about 2 acres (6000 + m2). We aim to keep it simple to maintain, easy to repair, and use as much eco-friendly materials as possible. We aim to have recycled water, compost toilets, use 100% solar energy and have an organic aquaponic garden, fish farm, and some chickens for fresh eggs….
So instead of complaining how bad the world is….We think it’s time to take action and live more free, happier, and with respect for our fellow man….and doing this project is step in the right direction because our kids are sharing it with us and now they have a path to live well in the 21st century…it’s very cool!
Location: Mexico…and yes, it’s a “huge” project! The plan is to build about 500m2 of construction (about 5000 sq. ft) on 6000m2 of land (about 1.8 acres). But I am taking it in phases. In 1 year, I was able to build the basic structures for all buildings except the last small dome (guest house). In 2014, I will do all the interior details and in 2015, the exterior, NO RUSH! ALL DEBT FREE, no mortage, no rent! Hey, dirt is free right? The costs are 50% less than conventional building.”
