Earthbag building Answered

I recently viewed the instructable for earthbag building. I understand the use of rice hulls can be substituted for dirt/earth as fill for the wall bags. Does anyone have experience using this medium? Are the procedures or methods the same? Any input would be welcome. Thanks...

50¢ / lb . unless you maybe have inside track on a rice producer.

are they pretty lightweight? make for easy handling? how big is that 50 lb bag for sale?

will mice find such construction appealing?

Seems like more effort than it's worth, what's wrong with dirt?
