  2. Hello from Romania! I would like to know what would be better to use for a rectangular building ( workshop, storage room) PP bags or raschgel bags? I tried the search on the site but I could not find a comparison. Will I still need the wire in between the rows? The building would be 10mX5m and 2.8m high. And one more question if I may: the area has no seismic activity, no floods propbles so will I still need the buttresses or iron bars through the layers? If so ..how many? The area is a remote area so I don’t need to follow code but just to make sure it will not fall on me..ha! Thank you for the infos in the book and on this site.

    • Raschel mesh is faster, easier and lower cost for your situation. The plaster will bond better, etc.

      I’ll leave the details of how much reinforcing is needed. Just play it by ear. Partly it depends on workmanship, wall length, size of windows and doors, etc. Long straight walls are the weakest. Keep the walls well tamped, level and vertical and less reinforcing is needed. If the wall feels a little shaky then add some rebar down through the center. It’s just common sense once you get into it.

  3. Different brands obviously have different properties. Our 15″ mesh bags make 15″ wide walls exactly the same size as 18″ wide solid weave polypropylene bags. So our mesh bags stretch quite a bit.
