Today’s post is about another low cost housing project in Haiti. Lower walls are ‘earth logs’ made with soil-filled filter fabric. Fabric is placed inside wood forms, filled with local soil and pinned closed. Earthbags are stacked on top.
“The Foundation of St. Peter has started building houses out of the rubble in Haiti. We help families rebuild their own homes through the Earthbag program adapted for Haiti. It supplies homes, work and shelter for as many people as we can raise a sponsor for. Cost for materials for one home: $500”
