  • How to Build an Insulated Earthbag House

    Hi Owen I am from Seattle, now living in India fir sometime. I would like build a house for my parents and myself , building houses takes 2 to 3 years here which I don't have the time or the money. EARTHBAGHOUSE is new to me:-) , Would any kind of dirt work? (Dry/ damp) Would the cement bags or the rice bags we get in India would work? Also can I mix regular cement with dirt for outer layers to keep the heavy monsoon rain? I am planning to go to Tibet next year to help build houses for nuns in a remote area, it's freezing cold in winter so what would be good to build the roof with? Thank you _/\_
