Earthbag Building: A Small Earthbag Dome

Below is the link to a step-by-step description of how Kelly Hart’s first experimental earthbag dome was created. The interior diameter is 14 feet 4.3 meters.

This prototype dome could serve as a model for emergency shelters, cabins, studios, garden sheds, etc. It should work well in earthquake-prone areas and places subject to flooding, winds, and hurricanes. It could be used as quick housing for people made homeless by natural disasters, such as in Pakistan, Turkey, Iran, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, and El Salvador.

As I was reading through this I was constantly reminded that anyone could do this just about anywhere. I am working on finding some land here in Amarillo TX to build something like this on and will post pics when I get going on it. If you try something please leave a comment and or send me an email also I love pictures.
