Rounded Corners on Earthbags — 4 Comments

  1. I’d like to know more. This seems a great way for a man to build a simple, energy efficient home for a minimum amount of money. It seems likely one could even build such a home in any configuration he wanted to.

    Thanks for any help you can give me,

    Steve

  2. this looks exelent and resonably easy with some effort.
    the question i have is it very difficult to get building permit in ontario canada. or is it a fight and the time to educat the planers and building code people in your areas

    • I’ve been recommending for people to move to rural areas so they can build however they want at lower cost. But this advice only goes so far, because most people want to live and work in cities. The new earthbag system by Precision Structural Engineering at Structure1.com is a game changer. Now you can gain code approval virtually anywhere. They have an international network of engineers that they work with. I imagine you could go through them to get permitted in Canada. Email them and see.

      Note: I just found out their services are very affordable. (At least on the current project I’m doing.)
