Report on Earthbag House in Haiti

I just received this encouraging report from Roger Gietzen: Attached are some photos of the earthbag protect in Haiti. We are preparing now for the cement top beam and the roof. I’m happy with the speed of work and the fact the walls are completed, but there are some things I could do better next time. The walls are not perfectly straight and the cement foundation was a bit expensive. Plus, because the soil was so heavy, the tubes were not practical. Luckily I have a sewing program and could get the tubes sewn into bags immediately on-site. All that being said, I believe this will be a nice strong building and will serve the community well.
