    How to Build an Earthbag Roundhouse

    Hi Owen! Thank you for this instructable! Are you familiar with sunken earthbag roundhouse designs? I have an opportunity to purchase several acres in arid Yakima Co, Washington. I think that I will be acquiring a 30 ft yurt soon. I would like to make a sunken earthbag roundhouse/yurt hybrid home. Essentially, I want to dig a 29ish foot diameter/ 6 foot deep hole; build a roundhouse with 11 foot walls with no roof and set up the yurt snugged around it. I would like to put in earthship style passive cooling tubes to help with combating the summer heat and a mass rocket stove.for winter. The building would look like a yurt from the outside but be much more expansive on the inside( I have a husband, three children and a mother in law in my immediate family).

    Hi Owen! Thank you for this instructable! Are you familiar with sunken earthbag roundhouse designs? I have an opportunity to purchase several acres in arid Yakima Co, Washington. I think that I will be acquiring a 30 ft yurt soon. I would like to make a sunken earthbag roundhouse/yurt hybrid home.

I would like to put in earthship style passive cooling tubes to help with combating the summer heat and a mass rocket stove.for winter. The building would look like a yurt from the outside but be much more expansive on the inside( I have a husband, three children and a mother in law in my immediate family). With that space we could construct a loft platform for my husband's mom. Have you heard of anything like that? I'm not sure where to get a designer to draw it up so I have a chance of getting a permit. I think in would be beautiful and much more affordable then a conventional home as my family, friends and I would be doing all the work. I would appreciate any advice you could give regarding such a build. Thanks in advance!!
