Avid blog reader Phil Dodd wrote, “Are you aware that in mid-Wales, UK, a sustainable-living practitioner is now coming to the end of his second earthbag build on his land? Kris Harbour has now nearly finished building a large workshop with earthbag walls, and a turfed timber roof. One of the notable features of the build has been that Kris has produced no waste in the building process. Additionally the water used has come from a natural stream, and his electricity he has generated himself from water turbines and solar panels. Even his vehicle is powered from used cooking oil.”
Phil points out that Kris has a Youtube channel that is fully documenting his building efforts, and it is well worth checking out. One good example is this video showing how he erected a huge reciprocal roof from massive poles.
