Winners Announced for Earthbag Building 2.0 Contest — 2 Comments

  1. thanks for the tips and suggestions to simplify earthbuilding techniques.

    as we plod along, we come up w ways to simplify things.
    example, i used to sew bags shut. now i just use three or four nails to fasten the bags, without having to stop and thread needles, and without minimizing the quantity of fill in the bags.

    i should admit, all of my filled bags are doubled.

    also, although i have a slider always available for use in awkward situations, most of the bags i fill are placed on top of the filled bag next to which i will place the bag i’m filling. the bag is filled and fastened shut. i then slide it into position (near the edge of the bag below) from where it again slides, falling exactly into place.
