Let’s see, what’s the last thing you spent $300 on? DMV renewal fees? A new laptop? Rent? We live in a culture where a lot of us subsist on very little, but we’re trained by those who have a lot of money to think less of what we do have. But it’s amazing what you can do with $300 if you have the creativity and determination to make something incredible happen.
Earthbag Home in Desert, one of many lovely earthbag designs to see at this comprehensive website, which also has nice images of bamboo, cob, several kinds of domes, earthbags, earthships, ferrocement, pyramid, underground and more kinds of homes. Well worth a look at the site... it was a high point for me when I discovered it!
Here's another inspiring earthbag construction for fans of natural homes out there! The Shantikuthi Earthbag Spiral House is called such because its walls were built in a spiral pattern. Its roof also has a spiral garden where visitors can harvest seeds to bring home and plant in their own yard. Learn more about it and view the slideshow of the building process on our site! :)
