From Roger, the inventor: “Steadfast Nepal just bought five earthbag machines (mini Earth Home Builders). This will help speed up home building at least 4 X faster / home. These units are not powered by skid steers as they have electric motors and gear boxes. They are light weight and allow the remotest villages to build with use of a power generator. They are called MEHB mini earth home builders and with help of Steadfast they were custom built for needs in Nepal. We hope to get the skid steer unit to Nepal in the future as they are the fastest way to build but of course the poor roads and lack of funds are slowing this down.”
“Thank you again Owen for talking with us over the years and giving us further inspiration to move forward with our own earthbag work. Hopefully the Earth Home Builder will prove to be what we hope it is and that is, most importantly, the pathway to actual Earth friendly affordable housing. What I can tell you so far about the EHB is this. It is AMAZING!
