Open Weave Fabric: Ideal Working Properties — 13 Comments

  1. Am a new enthusiast in hyperadobe construction and was wondering if one could use greenhouse shadwell net instead of raschel bags.

    • That is an interesting idea; it might work, but you would have to sew up the bags or tubing to do it. You might experiment a bit and see if it seems to work.

  2. “I never thought I would be so excited about new developments in soil filled bags”.

    Hahaha!! Me too!! Thanks, Thomas, you’ve described my life!

    Acctually, I’m finishing a post graduation on Hyperadobe, lots of new stuff, if you guys should need anything!

    Xoxo!

    • Do you have some new ideas or research to share? You can email to me. My address is at the top of the page under About Us.

  3. Perhaps the Supplier could be asked to make a run of bags with slightly tighter weave and maybe even denser strands specifically for earthbag building??

  4. I never thought I would be so excited about new developments in soil filled bags.

    Though I would probably still use the poly bags if using rice hulls/volcanic materials for an outer layer of insulation.
