Owen Geiger over at Earthbag House Plans has been busy. He has posted the preliminary designs for about 77 plans for earthbag homes available on his newest website.
An earthbag home is essentially a home made from the dirt under your feet. It’s scooped up and placed in bags like old grain bags or sandbags. They are then laid up like bricks and you can build strait walls, curved walls, and domes.
It’s probably the fastest and easiest way to build walls and the best part is that it’s as cheap as dirt. To learn more about building with earthbags visit Earth Bag Building. Here is a sample of what you’ll find:

Owen’s plans can also be bought at my husband’s website dreamgreenhomes.com — at least some are there.
We used to live with Owen in our earthbag house in Colorado and he is incredibly creative and detailed.
