    • I’d guess two stories, although it’s hard to say because many people don’t publish their projects on the Internet. It’s difficult to move heavy soil high in the air without machines.

    • You mean at the windows? Yes, it’s best to have window bucks in place to stabilize the walls. Attach every four courses or so to the bucks with galvanized metal or wood anchors, or wood dowels, rebar pins or bamboo.

      Another problem with cutting the bags like that is you can’t radius the corners as easily. I would rather close the ends of the bags or tubes next to the bucks.

      • Has anyone ever attempted to attach the barbed wire running between bag courses to the window and door bucks?

        Perhaps using the old school barbed wire staples used to attach barbed wire fencing to wooden fence posts?
