Here is a short documentary about building an earth sheltered earthbag Hobbit house and being able to eat it too! Very Interesting. “It’s not what you own, it’s what you do with it.” This 300 sq. foot round hobbit house with living walls and roof garden only cost about $56 ($500 including plaster) even though it’s built to last centuries.
“Teenage sons and father give a detailed breakdown of their $7000 Earthbag House build.” Great project. Highly recommended for every natural builder to watch due to number of good ideas, low cost and family cooperation.
Sometimes I go back and research previous projects to see if there’s any news. I was pleasantly surprised to see the NGO Migrating Culture making excellent progress in Ghana. Earlier we profiled their Mahali Project. Since then they’re gone on to build other projects include this very nice modern earthbag home called the Aseseeso Project. You can see a slideshow of the entire build.
