Due to the amazing success of earthbag buildings surviving the recent earthquake, I’m receiving requests to train the trainers who will help rebuild Nepal. I just started the Take it to Zero project and so it seems fitting to offer this training for free.
We finally got our pump house plastered at our homestead. We waited until after the rainy season to make sure the bags were dry. It’s looking pretty good considering the whole thing only cost about $200-$300. We had bags, salvaged wood and old roofing tiles left over from previous projects. The door and cement plaster were the only significant expenses.
