As an experienced builder, it’s fun to think of ways to improve productivity. Just imagine all the time and money you’ll save. This blog post explores three realistic earthbag building options: 1x = typical earthbag method; 2x = polypropylene tubes instead of bags; 3x = mechanized hyperadobe (raschel mesh tubes) on curved walls. (Note: An earthbag machine with 4x potential will be tested soon in Nepal, but we’ll save that for a later date.)
“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!
