  1. Have read Minke’s work and have to say he’s outstanding.
    Highly recommend it.

    By the way, was wondering if anyone out there is building in hot humid tropics.

    I am planning to build an earthbag roundhouse but termites are a problem here. Any suggestions or experiences from anyone out there who had to build in termite prone areas.


    • I live and build in a tropical climate. No problems so far. Consider adding borate to the soil mix or stabilize the mix with lime, etc. so termites will go where the conditions are more favorable.
