People keep asking for an update on our roundhouse, so here are some recent pics. Things are coming along nicely, although there are still numerous loose ends to finish: light fixtures, interior plaster touch up, cleaning tile (ugh) and landscaping. We’re very happy with the outcome and, of course, highly recommend this building method to others. I’ll be writing more about the roundhouse in upcoming posts. Stay tuned.

Kia ora Owen,
Could you give me a rough guesstimate of how many bags were used for your roundhouse and what is the diameter inside please.
There’s almost exactly 500 bags. You’d need more if you use fewer or smaller windows. We put in 5 large windows to maximize ventilation and natural daylight.
The inside diameter is 15′. Here’s a little more info: http://earthbagplans.wordpress.com/2009/07/26/earthbag-roundhouse-workshop/
AutoCAD drawings are complete.
