“It’s finally happening. My little cabin construction project is finally happening. The main building material is earthbag, sometimes called superadobe. Watch this site for our progress! Note that most recent posts are at the top, so chronological order of the blog starts at the bottom!”
Larry’s Earthbag House
“Across the hill from my cabin live Larry and Lea Van Arsdale. They are building a BIG earthbag house thirty feet in diameter and thirty feet high! They started a year ago and are still working on it, but they’ve been living in it since last fall. So far it’s two stories high and they plan on building the third story next summer. Right now they are scrambling to “cobb” the rest of the exterior before winter. That means applying the cob, (earth plaster) or adobe, to the bags which make up the wall.
