    Step-by-Step Earthbag Building

    I love this construction method but all the houses I see seem to be constructed on the ground. I would like to use this method for my future retirement in probably Belize or Costa Rica.Ideally I would like to build on a water facing lot. My question is whether you can build this home on a "raised" wood foundation on stilts like a typical hurricane-proof water facing house to allow for any "water flow underneath" in case of a flood? Would it withstand winds?Is building on stilts even necessary with this construction method? What sort of lot would be best? In looking at photos most water lots appear to be "sand" based?Thanks
