Why I’m Going to Build an Earthbag House — 6 Comments

  1. I have talked to a couple people in Ohio in 2 different counties who have alternative buildings – one is earthbag, one is an earthship. Neither had to have permits or inspections, just had to fill out a paper stating they were building. However, one DID have to have a septic system installed and another had to have the plumbing inspected to make sure it was appropriate for a septic tank (didn’t have to actually install the septic tank). They use a composting toilet and greywater system now.

    Neither of these locations is within city limits, but they aren’t that rural either.

  2. I wish you luck with that.Keep it small and hide it.
    Ive heard between google earth and small airplanes being used to look at propertys,people build in the middle of nowhere and end up with fines or removal of buildings.
