We just got a notice from the Earthbag Network Forum that “the downtime with our website has been fixed and we hope you’ll stop back. I’d like to thank the programmers who donated their time to fix the problem as our budget for the site is fitting for a website about low cost building methods! So stop back: earthbagnetwork.com

I encourage anyone interested in sharing information about earthabg building to join and participate in this forum. It is the only true forum about earthbag building that I know about, and active involvement is what keeps a forum alive.

    • I don’t recommend this method. Spend timing carrying around full earthbags and you’ll come to appreciate filling bags in place on the wall. And instead of using a shovel to fill the bags, try using 2-gallon buckets and a bucket chute. This is all shown step by step in my YouTube videos, in various blog posts and in my Step by Step Earthbag Construction article: http://www.earthbagbuilding.com/articles/stepbystep.htm

      In addition, you need to have the right moisture content for maximum compaction. This is best achieved by sprinkling or misting your pile of soil just before filling bags.
