How excited am I?
I have been wanting to try this for...ever.
Here is a site that gives a basic explanation but the whole idea is to build with bags filled with soil, think sandbags. One layer of bags then barbed wire between rows of bags that work like velcro to hold it all together. Check out the photos here of what can be aachieved. I really want to jump in and build a house but Jamie, always the voice of reason has decided maybe it would be better to try a trial run.
I have a chicken wire fence at the back of my place and it backs on to the local hall, so when I need to duck out to the loo anyone at a function at the hall can see me racing out. So the plan is to replace this fence with an earthbag wall. I hope to incorporate an old steel tractor wheel in the middle for a bit of interest. I found a place that sells seconds bags in Australia for 100 for $35....not bad.
