Hi! I am a Pakistani born Canadian citizen. Trained as a civil engineer, I focused myself on green earth technologies. Self educated with reading books & info. on net by great people like Dr Owen, Kelly Hart, Prof. Nadir Khalili. I am building earthbag dome in a flood hit area (Badin Pakistan) .This project is sponsored by UNDP (United Nations Development Program) Pakistan.
My 14 ft diameter Dome is complete. Thanks for kind guidance & support. I am sending u some photos. This project was funded by UNDP & total cost came to $1,500 as some basic materials were not available in coastal area (sand & clay).

It’s beautiful! I like the stairs at the entry very much.
That would make a nice gathering place. I also like how the floor has been raised and a ramp built.
Thanks Guru .
That is a beautiful little building Munir. Do you have photos of the process of building it?
Did you use bags or tubes? Also, structurally, is your dome “roof” self supporting or does it have supports inside.
Thank you for sharing it.

I used old bags. As that area is in seismic zone ,so i provided support with 4 light steel girders above the sleeping loft
